A random attack in East Price Hill, Ohio last Saturday looks suspiciously like another incident of the “knockout game.”

Will Griffith, a 54-year-old man, was allegedly attacked by Keith Capell at random. Griffith was left with fractures in his skull, jaw, and eye. (RELATED: Texas Couple Brutally Attacked In ‘Knockout-Game’ Style Incident)

Griffith reportedly said, “All I know is I was walking home and I ended up in the hospital.”

Capell  has been charged with, “felonious assault and possession of heroin,” WKRC Cincinnati reports.

The knockout game, which went viral in 2013, is a trend where groups of people on the street, often African-American, sneak up on others and punch them in the head with the goal of knocking them out.

Many on the left mock concern over the game, calling it “over-covered,” or a “myth,” despite the fact that people have been killed over it before.
