Police say a man filmed a teen beating up and robbing another teen near Tates Creek High School last month, and the victim later tried to commit suicide.
According to court documents, the victim told police he was walking home from school back on Aug. 23 when a teen attacked him, and stole his backpack and shoes while Antoine Deonte Young, 18, filmed and encouraged the act. The victim suffered some minor injuries during the robbery.
Court documents indicate the teen didn't want to return to school the following Monday because he feared continued bullying by Young and the teen. According to court documents, police were called to the victim's home and found the teen attempted to commit suicide by hanging so he wouldn't have to return to classes.
Police arrested Young on Friday and charged him with robbery.
