Video of beating as crowds laughs and joins in

WASHINGTON – A video posted online shows a Baltimore tourist being punched in the face, and not only do the onlookers not help him — they laugh.

Things get worse from there.

The crowd then strips him naked and takes his belongings — including his car keys, watch and phone.

WJZ-TV in Baltimore reports the incident happened on St. Patrick’s Day. The victim had apparently been out partying, and woke up in his hotel room with a black eye and scraps and bruises, but no memory of what happened that night.

Police say that the video has lead to several leads, but no arrests have been made.

There are some disturbing images in the video.
