The video showed the pair accost the man in the sliding door entrance. They start by punching him. After a couple blows, the victim falls to the floor. Then one of the teens kicks him in the head.
Police said the victim suffered minor injuries in the attack.
Despite the incident, Stone said she will not think twice about taking her children to the library.
“I still feel safe here. I’m not going to let it deter our interactions with the library,” Stone said. “It’s not the library’s fault. It’s the people.”
