83-Year-Old Man Speaks Out After Surviving Brutal Beating by Gang

An 83-year-old grandfather is speaking out after surviving a brutal attack from a group of dirt bike riders last November.

“I feel I’m lucky to be alive,” Richard Bell told Inside Edition. 

Bell was on his way to the supermarket in suburban Boston when he stopped at a stop sign. Suddenly, he found himself surrounded by a mob of dirt bike riders, who began attacking the car and him.

“That’s when one of the bikes ran into me. Then somebody else smashed the window,” Bell said.

Cops released surveillance video of the suspected bikers from the incident, which took place while Bell was on his way to buy a Thanksgiving turkey. When he tried to escape, he was chased for over two miles.

“The nightmare was to see this man coming back with a pipe, smashing my windows,” Bell said.

Bell endured blow after blow, and his arms were bruised in the attack.

“Well I’m getting hit by him, a brick comes through this window,” Bell said.

Bell managed to pull into a gas station, where he collapsed. His daughter Christy raced to his side at the hospital. 

“It breaks my heart, still, to know what he went through,” Christy said.

The father and daughter are aware they’re not alone. Gangs on dirt bikes have surrounded and terrorized other motorists.

Bell wonders if his assailants were the same ones who pulled a mom out of her car last August after she honked her horn at them in Providence, Rhode Island, in front of her 8-year-old daughter.

The attacks are random, and they are frightening to experience, as Bell knows first hand.

Bell and his daughter are now calling for a law requiring all off-road vehicles, like ATVs and dirt bikes be licensed.

    1. They became cruel and hateful IN GENERAL when we allowed the Progressive takeover of our educational system, drove God from our schools and began teaching Secular Humanism in His place, replaced teaching The Golden Rule with the teaching of Moral Relativism, stopped enforcing discipline in the classroom, replaced The study of History and Civics with Values Clarification (Values NULLIFICATION in reality) and created a generation of kids whose focus was themselves. “If it feels good – Do It!” was the cry of the ’60’s Hippie radicals who claimed their ideas were Utopian, and they became the teachers, professors and leaders who implemented their “Utopian Plan for America”. Frankly, I wish we could go back to the disciplined society of the 50’s and 60’s.

    1. Trash like this was caused before Trump ever went in office. You may want to look and obama and biden, they are the ones that started alot of this crap. Just because for no reason you dumacraps hate Trump, you try to blame everything on him no matter what or when. Just like obama blamed everything on Bush, but mostly obama blammed somebody else for everything because he was not man enough to take blame for what he did. Typical democrat, just like bidn is doing now.
