The victim’s family say more than two weeks later she is still in great pain and are asking those responsible to surrender.

Surveillance video captured the brutal attack by Norristown pizza restaurant owner Ying Ngov, 56, outside Mama Venezia’s pizza place on East Marshall Street on February 19.

The confrontation began after the men allegedly took items without paying. The victim chased the crowd and at one point picked up a shovel in his neighbor’s yard.

But the men quickly invaded it. The video shows them beating and throwing Ngov to the ground.

The victim’s husband is relieved that it was not worse. His son-in-law, Bryan Skipper, described his injuries.

“His back is hurting right now and they’re actually going to be taking a lot of imaging tomorrow,” he said. “His face still hurts, it’s still swollen.

Police issued arrest warrants on Monday for three 19-year-olds they say are responsible.

“Getting your hands on a woman, and especially a woman of her age and stature, it kind of blows me that you can do that to a person,” Skipper said.

“Sweetest woman, as always ask how is your day,” said one woman.

Customers have shown their support for the woman they affectionately refer to as “mom”.

“That they can get a shutdown and find the guys who did that,” said one customer.

The family asks those responsible to come forward.

“You’re going to get caught, you might as well surrender. You’re still young, you still have a chance to improve,” Skipper said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Norristown Police at 610-270-1476.
