    ‘Knock That White Boy Out’: Arrests Made After Mob Of Teens Attack Disabled Vet

    ‘Knock That White Boy Out’: Arrests Made After Mob Of Teens Attack Disabled Vet

    February 14, 2014 3:16 PM

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) - Cleveland authorities have made several arrests following the mob beating of a disabled Army veteran by a group of teenagers.

    Last Friday, the victim, Matthew Robinson, was surrounded by between six and eight teenagers while riding the RTA Healthline. Robinson told WOIO that he was attacked by the teens, then robbed of his possessions.
    During the attack, the teens made several derogatory remarks about Robinson.

    “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker,’” he was quoted as saying about the incident. “They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”

    This week, three suspects – Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16-year-old girl – were arrested by Cleveland and RTA police. The latter filmed the attack with her cell phone, and was said to still have the video at the time of her apprehension.

    Despite the arrests, concern remains as other attacks of a similar nature have happened in the area, most of which are said to have been perpetrated by other young culprits, according toWOIO.

    Added Robinson of the danger, “Your mother or sister could be on the bus, and the same thing could happen to them.”

    Public Square where Matthew Robinson was beaten up

    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -We're digging for more answers after the latest attack by violent teens downtown.

    Kenneth Matthews is out on bond and facing charges for alleged attempts to steal cell phones.

    Recently, the RTA police busted him for trying to steal a woman's cell phone at the West 25th Rapid Station.

    Matthews is also charged for trespassing at Tower City.

    Records show he was hanging there after police told him repeatedly to leave.

    Ronald Reid Williams is also charged with the attack on Army vet Matthew Robinson.

    A 16-year old girl, who police say videotaped the violence with her cell phone, was also arrested.

    Robinson tells 19 Action News he was jumped and racial slurs were yelled at him.

    No one stepped in to help him.

    He says, "I think that's a shame. The whole time I'm thinking protect myself and don't let anybody get behind me."

    This attack happened on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 at East 6th and Euclid by the three assailants mentioned above and other young thugs who haven't been identified.

    In recent months, there has been a rash of beatings downtown Cleveland from violent teenagers.
