Brothers, 13 and 15, arrested in videotaped battery of another student

Clark County School District Police have arrested two siblings in connection with the battery of a student that was recorded and uploaded to YouTube this week.

In the video, which was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday but has since been removed, two male teenagers are seen striking another teenager in the face multiple times.

The attackers, who are brothers ages 15 and 13, were arrested Friday and booked into juvenile detention on charges of battery, School Police Lt. Darnell Couthen said. The older brother, who is seen flashing gang signs in the video, faces a possible gang enhancement charge, Couthen said.

The attackers and the victims are district students, Couthen said. The 13-year-old assailant is a student at Roy Martin Middle School near Eastern Avenue and Stewart Avenue. Couthen did not have information on where the older brother or the victim attended school.
