St. Paul Police arrested suspects based on video


                          St. Paul police arrested an adult and a juvenile based on recorded video, which was posted on YouTube about random muggings in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
                          Police watched the viral video of teenage group of boys attacking people on the street on the YouTube, which was removed on Tuesday afternoon. They had enough time to identify the suspects to file a search warrant on Wednesday, reported the CBS News.
                          According to police report, a 19-year-old was booked into Ramsey County jail and a 17-year-old was booked into juvenile detention center on Tuesday on suspicion of assault and robbery, reported the Star Tribune.
                          Minneapolis Police Chief, Tim Dolan said, "I'm hoping these things were staged... they are very concerning."
                          The concerning video presented the real names of the suspects and shows the action of groups taking turns saying, "Watch this," before hitting victims, running away while laughing.
                          Mohamed Abdi, 19, recorded the assaults with his digital camera, edited and uploaded by his labtop computer, Pioneer Press reported.
