Beating of Chicago teen filmed, posted online

Chicago police question 6 teens in beating of teenager that was filmed, posted online By The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) ' Chicago police are questioning six teens in the beating of a 17-year-old boy that was captured on video and posted online.

Police say the attack happened Sunday afternoon in Bridgeport, a South Side neighborhood.

The video posted on YouTube shows hooded assailants repeatedly kicking and striking the victim. At least one attacker is wearing a face mask.



Police say they robbed the teenager of a pair of gym shoes, his wallet and cash. The victim was treated for a laceration to his lip, bruising and abrasions.

Chicago police say it doesn't appear the attack was racially motivated.

No charges have been filed.

Last year, an online video of a teenager punching a homeless man at a Chicago train station got about a quarter of a million views within two days.
