Asian business owners say teens terrorize shops

Teenagers are regularly disturbing the peace at shops in Bensonhurst, according to a group of predominantly Asian business owners.



The shopkeepers allege that the teens have been stealing, vandalizing the shops and taunting customers for weeks.



Groups enter the businesses between 8 and 10 a.m. or 2 and 4 p.m., according to merchants.



Shop owners have turned over surveillance video to the police as part of the ongoing investigation. They are asking other victims to come forward.
