ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County deputies have arrested one teenager and are looking for additional suspects accused of robbing and attacking a man who was riding his bike.
The sheriff's office posted video on Facebook of the July 11 attack, which was shot by a bystander.
The post said, "Who are these punks?"
Investigators said Ridnel Meus,19, had just bought food for his family at the Caribbean Supercenter when he was attacked by the suspects in the 5500 block of Alhambra Drive.
“I (saw) five of them. Like three guys and two girls,” he said. “They (were) waiting.”
According to a report, the suspects hit Meus in the face, knocking him off his bike. While he was on the ground, the suspects repeatedly kicked Meus in the face, according to the report.
“They beat me on my face and my ears,” said Meus.
Officials said the suspects stole the man's bike, shoes, cash and groceries.
Meus was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
On Friday, investigators said they had arrested 13-year-old Vontavious Thomas and charged him with felony robbery. Detectives said they are still looking for two to three additional suspects.
Detectives said a bystander, who is not related to the suspects, heard the commotion and recorded the end of the attack.
Investigators said Meus had another encounter with the same suspects in June where they stole his other bicycle.
