Man smashes car windows with tire iron in liquor store attack after parking lot crash

first_imgKTKR(HOUSTON) — Surveillance footage has captured the moment a man unleashed a brutal tire iron attack on another motorist after a car accident in a liquor store parking lot in Houston, Texas.Video shows two men, who were inside the liquor store together before the incident unfolded, getting into their vehicles, and reversing out of their parking spaces at the same time.The victim, who did not wish to be identified, told Houston ABC station KTRK-TV that he didn’t see the other driver and accidentally collided with the other car’s bumper. In the video, the victim is then seen driving back into the parking lot as the suspect does the same.Seconds later, the suspect is seen getting out of his car and smashing two of the victim’s windows, before appearing to lean into the driver’s side window and attempting to hit the driver.“All it took was the lightest of brushes with the car. Literally that’s all it took,” the victim said. “I know that if he did that to me, he is going to do that again someday to someone else.”“You cannot attack people like that. That’s not right,” store manager Kamh Vinh said.The incident, which took place on Wednesday around 7 p.m. in the parking lot of King Cole Liquor in Houston’s Montrose neighborhood, has been reported to police. The victim was not seriously injured.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Avram Grant charges Ghana players to stay longer in local league

first_imgBlack Stars coach, Avram Grant, has offered some words of advice to local-based players over their career choices.Over the past decade, footballers in the Ghana Premier League and lower divisions have developed the strong penchant for seeking greener pastures just after probably one breakthrough season instead of probably playing a bit longer to mature before moving on to the bigger leagues in Europe and other continents.The trend over the years, has been largely attributed to low salary levels and the lack of chance to break through to the senior national team squad. It has almost looked like players get called up to the Black Stars mostly when they make the step out of the country.The 60-year-old ex-Chelsea manager has recommended that players in the domestic leaguehttp://twitter.com/garyalsmith stay a bit longer to mature before moving out.“If I can give them advice, sometimes it’s better to stay in the league in Ghana for one or two more years to develop before going to Europe.”“Because in football if you are good it doesn’t matter where you play everything will go on well with you.” Grant said. Grant himself, has recently come for some bashing for calling only one local goalkeeper Fatau Dauda in the Black Stars squad for last month’s friendlies with Senegal and Mali.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more
