THREE teens have been arrested over a sickening attack that saw a young victim punched to the floor twice.
Two boys, aged 17, were arrested on Sunday and Monday with a third teen, also 17, arrested on Wednesday.
The third teen to be arrested was taken into custody at an east London police station while the other two were bailed.
They are now expected to attend a police station in late November.
The arrests come after a video of the horrific attack was released, showing three teens crowding around their victim and laughing as they punched him repeatedly, even kicking him while he lay dazed on the ground.
In the video, the victim, holding a phone and listening to music on speaker, can be seen surrounded by three other males when he is suddenly sent crashing to the ground.
His tormentors can be heard laughing and taunting him, calling out “you got dropped bro” and “get up big man, get up”.
He struggles to stand up again but is punched again, falling to the floor.
It has now been reported that the July 21 attack took place in Raphael Park, Romford.
The lad is clearly dazed and crying after the attack, which appears to take place in a secluded area in the east London park.
The voice of the person believed to be filming the incident can then be heard telling the others to “leave him”.
He also calls out “don’t stamp on him” as the group crowds around the injured boy.
But one of the boys does kick the vulnerable victim, with the bullies continuing their taunts, asking “why you crying on the floor, bro?”.
The attack, shared on Pure Banter’s Facebook page, has since been viewed more than 1.2 million times.
Describing the video, the page called on people to help identify the attackers.
Officers are now appealing for anyone who has information about the attack to come forward.
