A 15-year-old girl who videotaped a gang attack in a Chicago alley is one of seven teens charged in the assault of a 17-year-old boy that went viral after being posted on YouTube.
“She lured the victim to that location and also videotaped the attack,” said a spokesman for the Chicago police department. “It was planned and it was orchestrated so that victim would go to that alley and the attack would take place.”
The video was posted on YouTube shortly after the attack on Sunday afternoon. Although YouTube has made the original video age-restricted, the taped beating has gone viral on the Internet. Police say it helped them identify the attackers.
In the video, six attackers are seen beating and robbing a teenager of Asian descent in an alley behind a Chicago elementary school. They shout profanities and racial epithets while he is kicked and punched.
