NEW YORK - Authorities say a City University of New York college professor was beaten by a group of teenagers when he tried to stop them from starting a fire.

WABC-TV reports the attack happened in Staten Island's St. George neighbourhood Wednesday evening. Authorities say the professor, who teaches at CUNY St. George, was walking to a university event when he saw a group of teenagers setting paper on fire in a playground.

The professor was attacked by the teens when he told them to stop. Witnesses say the group punched and kicked the victim for several minutes before leaving.

Residents tell WABC-TV children in the neighbourhood behave badly when they leave school and have thrown rocks at people.
