Teen admits to randomly sucker-punching strangers at Texas park for social media attention

A Texas teenager admitted to randomly punching unsuspecting victims in public for social media attention, claiming he “just made a mistake” as police launched an investigation into the violent attacks.

Alford Lewis, 19, was captured on video walking on a trail at Wortham Park in Houston attacking at least two people as they enjoyed their day at the park, KHOU 11 reported.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office launched a probe soon after the disturbing video was posted on social media and shared on the neighborhood watch app Nextdoor to identify the suspect.

The video sparked rage and concern among the park’s frequent visitors who wanted action taken against the shameless suspect.

Lewis has since come clean about his wrongdoings.
