The New York Post reports the TikTok “door-kicking” challenge back.

This challenge has children or teenagers, sometimes wearing masks, loudly kicking a door, and then running away. It appears to be a new version of "ding dong ditch" where someone would ring a homeowner's doorbell and then run away.

"My wife was having a panic attack at the time because she was just so absolutely distraught,” prank victim Jeffrey Gibson said, according to the New York Post. "Until I saw the video, I didn’t even realize that it seemed to be some youths playing what appeared to be a very evil prank."

Homeowners report hearing several loud, scary, bangs on their doors.

WCBS 880 reports residents in New York State recently experienced the same prank.
