4 teens arrested in ‘knockout game’

The knockout game is where offenders randomly sucker punch strangers, with the goal of knocking them unconscious with a single blow.

Four Brunswick teens were arrested Thursday in connection with an unprovoked attack on a 16-year-old early Sunday morning inside a Walmart store. Investigators said the attack was similar to a national trend that has become known as the “knockout game.”

Glynn County police said the entire attack was captured on the Altama Avenue store’s surveillance video.

They said the victim, who’s the son of the Glynn County fire chief, was seen being punched by 18-year-old Brandon Allen Jr. Police said the victim had swelling and bruising to the face where the punch landed.

Three others, Jervon Sanderson, 18, Kaleb Dirting, 18, and Ramone Roberson, 19, were also arrested in connection with the assault.
