PHILADELPHIA (AP) ‚?? Three teenagers have been charged in a videotaped attack inside a Philadelphia supermarket that left a shopper with a broken nose and cheekbone.
The suspects were arrested after a video of the Saturday night attack turned up on YouTube. That video closely matched surveillance video detectives had posted on the Philadelphia Police Department‚??s YouTube site as they sought tips, authorities said.
The surveillance video shows the 47-year-old victim being struck in the face as he tries to defend himself with his cart. He is then struck and kicked after falling to the ground, and robbed of a money clip containing $100.
Police on Wednesday charged 18-year-old Tomas Eanes and 17-year-olds Kevin Tavarez and Jose Ruiz, all of Philadelphia, with robbery, aggravated assault and other crimes. Tavarez and Ruiz have been charged as adults. A female suspect seen on the video is still being sought.
It‚??s not immediately clear from court dockets if the suspects have lawyers.
Police don‚??t yet know if or why the victim, who was shopping with his brother, was targeted.
The assault occurred at about 10 p.m. at a Pathmark store in Northeast Philadelphia.
