According to WHP-TV, Harrisburg police are reporting that the alleged victims and witnesses in the "10 black guys attacked us for no reason" assault two weeks ago have stopped cooperating.

Local - CBS 21 News - Breaking news, sports and weather for the Harrisburg Pennsylvania area

There are so many problems with the original story:
  • The attack allegedly happened at 1:30am on a Saturday. The parking garage is FULL of pedestrians at that hour!
  • Even on the fourth level, lots of people would be attempting to exit the garage "early" at that hour. Nobody happened past the attack?
  • To exit the garage, the victims would have to drive past a cluster of Harrisburg police officers. There are always 3-5 stationed at the island between the entrance & exit to the garage. But - they didn't stop for help.
  • In fact, the victims didn't call the police until the next morning.
  • The victims may have had to drive past Pinnacle Health's ER -- but they didn't stop. However, it is possible that they drove out via another route.
  • NOBODY heard any screams.
  • NOBODY, except the alleged victims, saw the incident.
  • NOBODY reported a suspicious group in the area (surely, other people walked past the group of 10 alleged assailants).
  • The victims first stated that nothing was taken, then reported that the man's wallet was stolen.
Something is seriously wrong with this entire story. It sounds less and less like a random assault and more like someone forgot to pay their, ahem, "business associate". Or "pharmacist". Or "escort". Or whatever.
