Chicago - Detectives are investigating the beating of a 17-year-old boy by several male attackers Sunday afternoon in the Bridgeport neighborhood in an incident that was captured on YouTube, police said.

The attack happened between 4 p.m. and 4:20 p.m. in an alley in the 2800 block of South Princeton Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien.

The 17-year-old boy was battered by several unknown male suspects and was robbed of a pair of gym shoes, his wallet and cash, said O'Brien.

He has been released from Mercy Hospital and Medical Center for a laceration to his lip, bruising and abrasions, according to the officer.

A video was being circulated on YouTube that "matches pretty closely'' with what happened on Princeton, O'Brien said. "It's become a big deal because of the video,'' O'Brien said of the attack.

The video shows at least five males, including a one wearing a black mask who appeared to possibly be the ringleader, punching the victim multiple times.

At least once, the victim falls and blood can be seen on his lip but they keep after him, kicking him to the body and head when he is lying on the snow-covered ground.

The victim eventually gets up and appears to be trying to reason with the attackers, but the beating continues. Finally, the teen sees an opening and takes off running, but the suspects follow him down the alley.

According to a law enforcement source, the robbers took $180 from him and the incident is being classified as a "strongarm robbery.''

O'Brien said there was nothing to indicate the victim is a student.

As of late Monday, no one was in custody, but Wentworth Area detectives were continuing their investigation.


The video was posted on YouTube and removed twice. But a Reddit page on the attack drew more than 500 comments. Many even provided the names of those allegedly involved in the beating.

Community activist Andrew Holmes says social media is a useful tool in solving the crime.

“It was just disgusting, but I’m glad that the people are calling the Chicago Police Department, and posting information on video and on YouTube,” Holmes said.

In fact, police found out about the beating because so many people called them and showed them the YouTube video.

McCarthy said charges will come shortly against the six suspects now being held, and the other two wanted people are expected to surrender.

I was outraged after watching this, and had to calm down for a minute. The Youtube video above actually leaks the names(and even address) of suspected participants in this attack, under details:

WESLEY WU - grey hoodie, main kid attacking the man, deleted facebook.

EASLEY WU - big puffy jackey with fur hood, blue striped adidas pants

RAYMOND PALOMINO - white guy with no mask

TODD RAMOS - grey and black hoodie

JOHNNY LI - blue hoodie and blue snap back on

DANNY HUI - dressed in all black

I hope they find these bastards. Justice must be served.
