Teens Face Charges In Taped Beating

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Police say three Bridgeport teenagers are facing charges for an attack on another teen that a friend recorded on a cell phone.

The suspects _ two 14-year-old boys and a 13-year-old boy– are facing second-degree assault charges for the attack on a 16-year-old student at Central Magnet High School. Their names were not made public because of their age.

The victim told police he was jumped from behind at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday. He suffered cuts, bruises and scratches, but did not require medical treatment.

The Connecticut Post reports that the victim recognized the boy who made a video recording of the attack. Police went to his school Wednesday and spoke with the boy, who admitted to being present and identified the attackers.
