Teen beat man, 74, in racial attack, Port Richey police say

PORT RICHEY — A teenage girl punched and slapped a 74-year-old man in a Walmart parking lot Monday afternoon while shouting racial slurs at the man, according to the Port Richey Police Department.

Gabriell Marie Mazzi, a white 17-year-old who is 5 feet tall and weighs 95 pounds, attacked the man, striking him "multiple times on both sides of his face with a closed fist," the report said.

The victim's medical condition was not available Tuesday.

The incident happened about 6 p.m. at 8701 U.S. 19. A report does not state was triggered the attack. Nor does it state the victim's race, but the report says Mazzi repeatedly called him the n-word.

Mazzi, who lives in Dunnellon, told authorities she works as a waitress, but did not list the location. She was arrested and charged with battery on a person aged 65 or older.
