News 12/1010 WINS reporter injured during Brooklyn protest
A News 12/1010 WINS radio reporter was injured during a protest Saturday evening.
News 12's Darius Radzius took video of a liquor store being looted Saturday evening in Brooklyn.
Radzius was attacked after his live report for 1010 WINS Radio.
He says after signing off, someone yelled "snitch."
He was then hit from behind with some type of object.
As soon as he was hit, he fell to the ground and got swarmed by protesters.
"I'm down on the ground, trying to figure out what's going on really fast and I see all these people surrounding me I can't see anything beyond a couple feet," he says. "Then someone who identified herself as a nurse got down and saw trying to treat my wounds."
Radzius needed five stitches above his eye.
He says he is thankful for the demonstrators who took care of him before help arrived. Radzius says they were friendly, trying to stop the people from looting.
