Orlando – Police have tracked down two suspects and are searching for others after releasing a video of a gay man being beaten by a mob in Parramore.
According to Orlando Police, the victim left his house the evening of March 26 and was walking east when about a dozen black males approached him and several of them started kicking and punching him.
Police say the suspects removed the man’s pants and took his wallet and cell phone before running away.
Orlando Police released a video of the attack, which resulted in the arrest of two suspects, Deandre Florence, 14, and Dennis Florence, 16.
Police are still searching for others involved in the beating. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
The victim, 32, escaped the attack with minor injuries and refused medical attention. Police found his phone but not his wallet. The victim said there were too many attackers and the beating happened too fast for him to describe the suspects, but he told police he wants to press charges.
