WUSA reports the Korean Night Breeders are accused in court documents of extorting bar owners for money after bringing in underage drinkers to get them drunk.
They used the extortion money to buy drugs like crack cocaine and marijuana and they allegedly beat up one victim so bad his eyes were swollen shut.
The Korean American Merchants Association intervened, even giving gang members money so they could get apartments and find a new job. but gang members turned on members of the Merchants Association.
“He said he wouldn’t leave me alone,” said Ray Park. “Basically watch out.”
The leader of the Night Breeders was arrested and is now serving 17 years in prison. You can learn more about this gang in a video report from WUSA,
