FORENSIC PSYCHIATRY

Definition A popular term for an unprovoked, motiveless assault by a group, usually of young men, on another person, often a stranger, merely for the pleasure of engaging in one or more acts of violence

Examples Gang rape, stabbing, shooting, homicide

The term first gained traction with the Central Park (NYC) Jogger case. The phenomenon is well-described in the USA, but is thought to be rare in socially advanced countries
