Details

A YouTube video led to the arrest of a battery suspect Monday afternoon. The 18-year old can be seen attacking a 15-year old girl in the 5700 block of Russett Rd. last Thursday afternoon. The video came to the attention of the MPD after it was posted on Facebook. It shows the victim being punched repeatedly. She is thrown to the ground, punched some more and stomped on. It is clear she did not want to fight, and quickly leaves the area after she is able to gain her footing. Numerous young people stood and watched the violence as it was recorded.
