Yakima police arrest teen for assault caught on camera

Yakima police have arrested an assault suspect seen committing the crime in a viral video.

On Tuesday, Grey Paniagua posted a video of the incident onto Facebook, and it has since been viewed over 135,000 times.

The video can be viewed here.

The video shows what appears to be students with backpacks walking down a street when one student starts to punch another, and then flips him to the ground, and hits him again.

Yakima police shared the video on Wednesday and wrote, “This incident occurred last week. The victim was not hospitalized. The Yakima Police Department is aware of this video and made an arrest in this case.”
