The victim was struck numerous times in the head with the skateboard and suffered serious head trauma, officials said. He was taken to a hospital. The assailant was described as white, in his late teens to early 20s, about 6 feet tall, with shoulder-length hair and wearing gray shorts and a dark shirt. He was seen fleeing in a white Honda, police said.

@Tom_Gee - agreed. The person who did that just wanted to hurt someone. He would have used a bat just as well.

I've been skateboarding since the 1970s. A REAL skateboarder 1) WOULDN'T use his board as a weapon against an innocent, unarmed, vulnerable person. ANY such person. 2) Would ride off on his skateboard after having DEFENDED some such defenseless person against unprovoked attack. (Probably after having made a police statement) Gabriela Schumann https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212046003736296 is just one such skateboarder not of antiquity as I myself, whom I would hold up as a modern example of Skateboard culture.
