Boys who sucker punched disabled man arrested

The teens fall about laughing as the man named Mark is taken aback by the shocking attack

A video of the incident, posted on Facebook, is highly disturbing and hard to watch, showing a smiling, apparently distracted man suddenly slugged as bystanders watch and laugh. As the man looks to escape, another male punches him. Andrews has since removed his post, but the video has been widely shared elsewhere.

"This guy is a friend of mine who happens to be mentally challenged", he wrote. Another 15-year-old boy who delivered the second punch was apprehended Tuesday night, sources tell Action News "To them, they might have thought this was clever, but my message to them and kids in general is to do more constructive things with your time".

Andrews told Philly.com that he works with the man in the "heartbreaking" video, whose name is Mark. They were informed that the video was recorded on Memorial Day at Chelten Avenue and Knox Street.

Philadelphia police have arrested four boys, ranging in age from 12 to 15, in the beating of a disabled man that was caught on camera. There were about five attackers and they appear to be young teens.

"Obviously, what is depicted in the video is very disturbing", the law officer stated.

Three of the boys were arrested at school Tuesday and released into the custody of their parents. "Because you shouldn't be out there messing with people", Jones added.

In that incident, Fitler Academics Plus School principal Anthious Boone was struck with a brick when he attempted to break up a fight between Fitler students and students from neighboring Mastery Charter schools.
