Two teenagers in Syracuse, New York were recently arrested and charged with assault in the third-degree after a video of them attacking a 62-year-old man was posted, and then went viral on Facebook. The man told police he asked the girls, who were among a larger group of kids, to not sit on his property, and then he was attacked.
The police were immediately not able to locate the suspects, but through the help of detectives in the local school system were able to find them. As they are minors, their identities have remained a secret, but they both have been released from jail into the custody of their parents, and each have a court appearance scheduled.
The victim also remains unidentified, but says the video of his attack reached all across the world, including by a relative of his living in Ireland.
