Report: 3 Charged In Videotaped Stripping,Whipping [VIDEO]
Three people are under arrest in Newark after a video surfaced that showed a naked young man being whipped because of his father’s debt.
Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio says the three young adults, who are affiliated with a street gang, are charged with aggravated assault and robbery.
The video shows a 21-year-old being forced to strip and then whipped with a belt, supposedly because his father owed someone $20.
DeMaio says the victim sustained welts and abrasions during the August attack. Police say the man didn’t require hospitalization.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker criticized people for not coming forward sooner.
