The victim’s family says that more than two weeks later, she’s still in a lot of pain and they are asking those responsible to turn themselves in.
Surveillance video captured the brutal attack of a Norristown pizza shop owner, 56-year-old Ying Ngov, outside Mama Venezia’s Pizzeria on East Marshall Street on Feb. 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 from her neighbor’s yard.
But the men soon swarmed her. Video shows them punching and throwing Ngov to the ground.
The victim’s husband is relieved it wasn’t any worse. Her son-in-law, Bryan Skipper, described her injuries.
“Her back is hurting right now and they are actually going to take a lot of imaging tomorrow,” he said. “Her face still hurts, it’s still swollen.”

“Putting hands on a female, and especially one of her age and stature, it just kind of blows my mind that you could do that to a person,” Skipper said.
“Sweetest lady, like always asks how your day is,” one woman said.
Customers showed their support for the woman they fondly call “mom.”
“That they can get some closure and they find the guys that did this,” a customer said.
The family is pleading for those responsible to come forward.
“You’re going to get caught, you might as well turn yourself in. You’re still young, you still have a chance to better yourself,” said Skipper.
