OKC Police Arrest One, Seek Two More In Connection To Beating Video
OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police have arrested one suspect and are looking for two more after a video surfaced online showing two brothers being brutally beaten.
Two brothers were brutally beaten and kicked while someone else cheered and recorded the fight with their cell phone. The fight took place at the park across the street from Putnam City West High School where some of the boys go to school.
Thursday morning, Oklahoma City police confirmed that a 15-year-old boy has been arrested by the police gang unit in connection to the beating. He was booked into the Berry House on a complaint of aggravated assault and battery.
According to police, two others have been identified, but are still at large.
One of the brothers suffered a broken cheek bone and orbital fracture. The other suffered a broken nose and concussion. Both may have to have reconstructive surgery.
The whole thing was made worse, said the boy's mother, by the fact that someone was using the video and pictures to taunt the boys on social media.
