Authorities arrested two 18-year-old men on April 11 suspected of assaulting a man with autism in a Rolling Hills Estates shopping center parking structure.

People watched as the two attackers kicked and punched the man as he lay on the floor of the parking structure on the 500 block of Deep Valley Drive, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

At least one of the witnesses took video of the beating.

Though the assault took place on March 22, authorities did not hear of the incident until they were notified three days later of the video recordings, which were posted online.

In the first video, two men were seen mocking the victim and stealing items from his pockets after the beating, the Sheriff’s Department release said. A second video showed the victim shirtless, the two men ordering him to strip down to his underwear.

Investigators were able to use the video to identify two suspects as Declan Bell-Wilson, 18, of Rolling Hills, and Korey Streeter, 18, of Palos Verdes Estates who were both arrested at their homes Thursday. The pair were booked on suspicion of conspiracy, assault, and robbery.

Authorities also detained several teenagers who were believed to be present during the attack, the release said.

The victim was identified as a man, described as a “young adult” who was diagnosed with autism.
