Buffalo teens get prison for stomping homeless man

Jun 2, 2017

Two Buffalo teens have each been sentenced to seven years in prison plus five years of post-release supervision for their part in the stomping of a 64-year-old man, causing him severe injuries.

Aaron Gallon, 18, and Armontae Moss, 16, had pleaded guilty in April to attempted murder in the second degree.

The incident took place September 22, 2016 at Ellicott Street and Broadway. Prosecutors say the victim was homeless  and the stomping was unprovoked. He suffered severe physical injuries that included head trauma and skull fractures.

A third co-defendant, Larry Durham Jr., 15, of Buffalo, made the same plea in April and will be sentenced on June 7.
