COPS ON Wednesday arrested a 17-year-old boy who they say admitted to filming his friends beating a 47-year-old man Saturday night in the frozen-food aisle of the Franklin Mills Pathmark and to posting the video online.
Police tracked down the teen, who has not been officially charged, after the video he posted on YouTube showed up on the website as a related item to a police-posted surveillance video of the unprovoked attack.
In the videos, three teen boys and a girl can be seen approaching the victim and taunting him as he pushes a shopping cart. A scuffle ensues, and one of the teens punches the man in the face. Police said the teens continued to punch and kick the man after he fell to the floor and stole a money clip with $100 from him.
