Video: Man Beaten, Robbed, Filmed by Baltimore Crowd

| by Michael Allen

An unidentified man was recently beaten, robbed and recorded on video (below) by a crowd of people in Baltimore, Maryland after they spotted an expensive watch on his wrist.

The assault reportedly happened on the morning after St. Patrick’s Day. Police said the victim is a 31-year-old man from Arlington, Virginia, who escaped the encounter without serious injuries.

Apparently, he’d been drinking at several St. Patrick’s Day parties before the attack. His attackers can be heard jeering as he’s knocked to the ground, robbed and stripped of some clothing.

Witnesses just laughed or kept walking.

The man awoke the next day at his hotel without memory of the assault, and discovered that he was missing his iPhone, a $1,300 wristwatch, his wallet and his car key.

Police have identified at least one suspect in the case so far.
