This trend has been going on for some time. The knockout “game” catches someone by surprise and is usually someone who’s alone. It’s black on white assault of just about any white person that can send you to the hospital or kill you. Below is a compilation of past knockout game attacks:

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. —A 35-year-old Roebuck man is accused of a random assault on an 80-year-old woman as she stood in a grocery store.

Deputies were called to the Food Lion store on Highway 221 Monday morning about the assault. The 80-year-old woman told deputies that she was standing near the checkout looking at drinks when a man she didn’t know walked up to her and pushed her. She said before she had time to realize what was happening, the man punched her in the back, knocking her to the ground.

The woman said the man never spoke a word and just walked away.

Deputies said the assault was caught on camera and was also witnessed by employees. The employees said they recognized the man as Curtis Styles, who lives behind the store.


A deputy went to Styles’ home on Pineridge Street and said he found him standing in the front yard, wearing the same clothes he was wearing in the surveillance video. The deputy said Styles denied anything having happened, so the deputy showed him the video.

The deputy said Styles said it was not him in the video because his face wasn’t visible.

The deputy arrested Styles and charged him with third-degree assault. He was being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
