Gang banged

A murderous, revenge-seeking mob clubbed a 22-year-old man to death and stabbed another man at around midnight on Aug. 1 on Fifth Avenue.

Witnesses said that the murder victim, Alex Santiago, was near 12th Street when about 20 savages pounced and fatally beat him with crowbars, a tire iron and glass bottles. The other man was stabbed in the melee.

Cops said that the homicidal perps had a vendetta against Santiago and the stabbing victim that stemmed from an earlier dispute, which occurred on Fifth Avenue near 10th Street. No arrests have been made.

Cops said that Santiago has a long list of prior arrests, though it is unclear if he did anything illegal that provoked the current incident. His widow, Stephanie, is due to give birth next month.
