Three Black Teens Attack Elderly Woman


From WBTV:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Charlotte Mecklenburg Police say a three teens were arrested in connection to a home break-in where an elderly woman was attacked and her car stolen.

The woman’s family told WBTV on Tuesday that she has a tough recovery ahead. Her bruises and stitches may heal, but they said she is emotionally upset.

Sylessa Ford, 17, Myron Bullock, 18, and an unnamed 14-year-old were all arrested Monday and charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, kidnapping and breaking and entering.

The attack happened around 1 p.m. on Sunday in the 4200 block of Westcliff Drive. Police say they believe the teens broke into the woman’s home with weapons and ransacked her house.

The woman’s son and husband say the suspects covered her face with a bag, tied her to a chair and hit her with furniture. The family shared pictures of a broken television set and glass-top table, which they say were used in the attack.

Police said the trio then left the scene in the victim’s car, an olive-green 2005 Nissan Altima. That car was recovered on Tuesday after a 13 and 14-year-old, who were not involved in the original incident, wrecked the vehicle.

After the attack, the woman was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with serious injuries. WBTV is choosing not to identify her or her family because of the brutal assault. The family says she hasn’t been able to sleep, and now feels unsafe in the home where she has lived the past two decades.

On Monday morning, detectives identified the 14-year-old, whose name has not been released, as one of the suspects and placed him under arrest.

Just a couple hours later, police said they had also arrested Ford and Bullock. Bullock was also arrested earlier this year for robbery and other lesser charges. Based on court records, those charges are still pending.

“It was just terrifying to see this happen to the neighbor you know right across from me,” said neighbor Susie Thomason.

“It definitely shakes you up a bit,” says neighbor Pablo Robledo. He is worried that more incidents like this will continue, and says he reported a shooting that took place less than a month before just several blocks away.

Robledo says police presence is an issue in his area. “I think it’s pretty bad that all this has to happen and we can’t even get a patrol car to come down the street once or twice a week.”

He believes that will help people in his neighborhood feel safe.

“It’s not the best neighborhood to live in, but people still live here and we’d like to feel secure and with all this happening it’s kind of hard to feel that way.”


We see heavy media coverage of the protestors in Ferguson and NYC all focused on how blacks are persecuted by the cops. However, when the shoe is on the other foot, the media is nowhere to be found. As you probably noticed I found this on the website of a North Carolina TV station and saw it on no other news service. There were also no stories of protesters in the streets after this crime was committed, probably because there wasn’t a cop involved that they could lay the blame on. There were only 3 black punks beating the daylights out of a defenseless woman.

Even if the media was there, the only thing you’d hear is their mamas crying about how those little angels were turning their lives around and how good they’re doing in school. But the bottom line is this – when three black teenagers gang up on anyone, especially an old lady, it stands to reason that people are going to have a very low opinion of blacks in general. So if the other respectable blacks want to be thought of more highly, they should be out in the streets decrying this horrible action. It’s not black and white – it’s black crime.

Robledo makes a valid point – where cops are more visible there are generally fewer crimes. With the high tensions that exist between blacks and cops right now, the cops probably want nothing to do with a risky neighborhood such as this one. Instead of whining about it, why not form neighborhood watch programs and patrol in shifts until punks like these get the idea to leave this area alone.

It’s time for people to take some responsibility for their well-being and stop depending on the cops to do it. Cops shouldn’t have to worry about getting shot at when doing routine patrols.

    Kathy, Kathy, Kathy……You just don’t understand. If not this neighbor”hood” then it will be another. There just isn’t enough law enforcement. I would gladly double my taxes if we would build just one dungeon!!!!

    • Kathy says:

      There will never be enough law enforcement as long as the system works like a revolving door for punks like this. And as long as the jails and prisons are overcrowded they will keep releasing criminals back onto the streets.

      Thanks for the visit and the input – I’m with you on the dungeon, a really big one.

    eric holder is calling the teens to thank them for their crime

    How about a nation wide site of crimes

    • Kathy says:

      That sounds like a good idea, Liz, but it’s probably a task that would be impossible to coordinate and if the feds were involved it would end up in the same boat as obamacare. Some cities are just now getting hooked into federal data bases. Don’t you just love bureaucracy and red tape?

  4. CW says:

    The first thing this brings to my mind is Terry’s recent post about the liberal public defender and his awakening to the culture of violence and depravity that encompasses so much of the black community:

    Ordinarily I would agree with you that the neighborhood watch system is the answer except look at how it rewarded George Zimmerman. Any non-black person who kills a black person to protect himself now has to deal with vicious cannibals in the leftwing media. As usual this is a problem that would cure itself if not for the liberals and their destructive influence on this country. If not for them this pattern of barbaric behavior among young blacks would be widely discussed and condemned and the people who stood up to it would be hailed as heroes instead of finding themselves in legal trouble and fearing for their lives. Until we push back with greater force, evil will win out.

    • Kathy says:

      The Zimmerman ordeal went through my mind too, but if people let those kinds of incidents stop them, they’re more at the mercy of thugs like this than they were before.

      They may have to go in pairs, but they need to take some responsibility and stop depending on the cops. A drive-by in a patrol car is only a delay to these punks.

  5. Grouchy says:

    Awesome article. The MAIN problem I see with the ideas of Robledo is the same results from Holder, obomination, and the rest of the leaders of the NBPP and its membership.

    They are dead set against any curbs on the lawlessness of black youth. AND, they, along with the NYC mayor, have painted targets on all LEO’s. As long as the culture of the black community doesn’t recognize the need for a father or a mother and the discipline of the youth from the cradle upward, you’ll continue to have the Trayvon Martins, the Michael Browns, the Al Sharptons, and the two goons named in this article, Sylessa Ford and Myron Bullock. And let us not forget rev. jeremiah wright.

    Congrats to Sharpton, for the culture you are creating and enabling.

    • Kathy says:

      When you’re dealing with a mindset as was described in Terry’s post, it makes it obvious that it will take a long time to fix this, if ever. Fueled by the scum like Sharpton makes it harder if not impossible to change their attitudes.

  6. vonMesser says:

    Was the victim also black? If so, that’s one reason not to have been publicized as only white on black crime is reportable.

    • Kathy says:

      Although the piece doesn’t say if she is black, I got the impression she could be, just from the way the neighborhood was described. And like you say, when blacks commit a crime these days, it gets very little publicity, if any at all. I’m seeing the story on some FB posts, but yesterday it was nowhere to be found.

  7. Clyde says:

    Goddamn thugs. My wish for them is to become prison bitches in the TRUE sense of the word. Open ass, drive in Mack truck. As for the neighbors begging for the police to be there, what were THEIR views on all the so-called police brutality ? We KNOW why the leftist lying media isn’t going to cover black on white crime, AND the reason WHY they won’t. Another thing that frosts my flakes: If black lives matter so goddamn much, WHY do THEY keep killing each other off in record numbers ? WHY do THEY keep committing record numbers of crimes ? Grouchy’s comment about summed it up.

    • Kathy says:

      If the punks are doing crap like this as teenagers, imagine what kind of adults they’ll become, if they live to adulthood, that is.

      Black lives only matter when whitey kills one of them, not when it’s black on black.

  8. Western Guy says:

    Instead of a neighborhood watch system, maybe a neighborhood sniper system and a set of gallows about every other block?

    • Kathy says:

      I like that, especially the gallows part. Nothing like seeing that every day as a reminder that perhaps a career change is in order.
