Two boys, ages 13 and 14, were taken into custody on Saturday. The arrests came after their parents went to police complaining about harassing phone calls the teens were getting.
Instead, investigators turned the tables and took the pair into custody. They were released to the custody of their parents on $2,500 bond.
Another 14-year-old boy was arrested on Monday night.
Action News reported David Henry encountered one of the suspects at police headquarters. When asked if he had anything to say about the incident, the teen said to his mother, “Am I going to have to beat him too?”
The video, which went viral after it was posted on social media, shows the 26-year-old man known as Coran, being beaten by several teenagers. The victim’s mother took him to DuPont Hospital for questioning in a medical setting to learn exactly when the incidents happened.
Police say more arrests are expected.
