Attackers post video of assault on victim’s Facebook page
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say two men stole a cellphone from a suburban Detroit man with cerebral palsy, beat him, recorded the assault on his cellphone and posted it to his Facebook page.
The Oakland County sheriff’s department says Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey were arrested following the Sunday morning attack at the victim’s apartment complex in Pontiac.
The 20-year-old suspects were arraigned Tuesday on charges including assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, and ordered held on $25,000 bond.
The Associated Press sent a message Wednesday to determine whether they have lawyers to comment on the case.
Investigators say they were told the suspects also posted the video to their own Facebook pages. The sheriff’s department has released video of the attack.
