A Louisiana teen that has autism was the victim of a “knockout game” attack last weekend, leaving his jaw broken in two places, according to TheDailyCaller.
The attack occurred in Covington, La as the 17-year-old was walking home from the library and was was hit from behind unexpectedly.
“All of a sudden the boy in the maroon shirt came up from behind him punched him from behind in his face and he fell to the ground,” his mother said.
The teen had to have surgery to install four plates and 15 screws to hold his broken jaw back together. He’ll also be on a liquid diet for eight weeks while his injuries heal.
