Elderly pro-life supporters brutally beat outside Baltimore Planned Parenthood

The police in Baltimore are in search of a violent assailant who brutally beat two elderly pro-life advocates who were praying outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in the city. The victims have been identified as Dick Schafer (80) and Mark Crosby (73). According to John Roswell, a pro-life activist in the area, Schafer is currently recuperating at home, whereas Crosby remains under hospital care with multiple injuries. Based on surveillance footage, an unknown individual initially approached Schafer in an aggressive manner and forcefully knocked him down later over a huge ceramic flowerpot. Shortly after, Crosby rushed to Schafer’s defense, but he was thrown to the ground and repeatedly punched in the face by the attacker. Before departing the scene, the presumed assailant forcefully kicked Crosby in the face, employing what the police characterized as “extreme force.”

Police are searching for a violent assailant after two pro-life advocates were violently beaten while reportedly praying outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Baltimore.

The victims were identified by LifeSiteNews as 80-year-old Dick Schafer and 73-year-old Mark Crosby.

A local pro-life activist, John Roswell, told the pro-life outlet Schafer is recovering at home while Crosby is still being treated at the hospital because the “plate bone in his upper right cheek is completely fractured” and he “is bleeding from some unidentified area behind his eye and the bone eye orbit is completely shattered and will have to be replaced with metal.”

According to WMAR-TV, surveillance footage shows an unidentified man first approaching Schafer. The man was speaking in an aggressive manner, police said. The assailant seemed to be turning away from the elderly man before rushing toward him and tackling him over a large ceramic flowerpot.

Moments later, Crosby reportedly ran to defend Schafer. He was immediately thrown to the ground, at which point the man attacking him purportedly began punching him in the face.

Before walking away, the suspected attacker kicked Crosby in the face using what police described as “extreme force.” While Crosby is still undergoing treatment in the shock trauma unit of the University of Maryland Medical Center, he is now in stable condition.

Schafer was treated on the scene for minor injuries.
