A grotesquely vicious group-beating and robbery video has been posted to YouTube showing a bunch of teenagers brutalizing a terrified boy and yelling racist expletives at him while he pleads for mercy.
Police say the 17-year-old Asian male who was beaten and robbed in the video clip was attacked on Sunday in an alley behind an Elementary School in Chicago, according to WMAQ-TV.
The video shows five males striking the victim with kicks and punches as they swarm around him, yelling racial slurs. Police, however, claim that the incident “did not appear racially motivated.”
After being choked, dragged across the ground, and taking numerous blows to the head and face, the victim was eventually able to escape. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
Some of the attackers show their faces in the video, and the accomplice filming the attack may have been the one who uploaded the film to YouTuve, which could be useful to police if a prosecution is mounted.
