California Man Sentenced After Security Camera Catches Unprovoked Assault On Two Young Boys At Target

YouTube (CBS Sacramento)

After more than 3 months, two young California boys finally received justice.

In August of 2019, two young boys were assaulted by a grown man in Target.

The offender was 51-year-old Jeff Hardcastle. In CCTV footage shared by CBS Sacramento, Hardcastle can be seen hitting an 11-year-old boy from behind and punching a 5-year-old boy in the face, knocking him to the ground.

The attack was completely unprovoked. The two children were innocently playing video games in the store when they were attacked.

After Hardcastle attacked them, the youngest boy was carried off to safety.

Now, nearly 4 months after the traumatic attack, Hardcastle has been sentenced to almost 10 years in prison.

Now that he has been sentenced, police have released the footage of the violence.

Upon watching it, people are in shock at the senseless act of violence.

Others do not think he would have even made it to sentencing had they been around.

According to The New York Post Hardcastle pleaded “no contest to assault and causing great bodily injury to a minor.” His plea deal also included a plea of “guilty” to a 2008 violent robbery.
