Came across posts from Huffington,CBS etc that have been posted yesterday or today and figured I would share. Even the lame stream seems to have a slight interest....amazing.
(The video in question)
Video of a tourist being beaten, robbed and stripped naked in
Baltimore has surfaced on the Web, and police are hoping to use the clip
to make arrests in the case.
The incident occurred on St. Patrick's Day, after the reportedly disoriented victim was returning from a night of partying, CBS Baltimore reports. A bystander captured the attack on camera and later posted it online.
A group of people took the man's belongings, as onlookers laughed and
pointed. It appears the man attempted to retrieve his items when he was
punched and subsequently stripped naked while lying on the pavement.
The victim found his way back to his hotel room, where he awoke the
following morning with bruises and cuts but with no recollection of the
previous night's events, the Baltimore Sun reports. He reported an assault and robbery, but could not provide police with details of the events.
A family member later came across video of the attack online and told the victim, CBS Baltimore reports.
The clip was also posted on Twitter, where the male who punched the victim said it was self defense, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Authorities haven't made any arrests but have received tips about the identity of one of the attackers.
Earlier this year, seven Chicago teens were charged in connection with a vicious attack
on a 17-year-old student behind an elementary school. The incident was
captured on video and posted on YouTube. The clip helped police identify
the alleged attackers.
