The incident of bullying by the neighborhood teens only came to light because the boys recorded the events and posted the video to Facebook. Someone told the father who after viewing the video immediately called police.

The video begins with the young boy screaming,

“I don’t want to die, I don’t want to die, I don’t want to die,”

The teens are heard laughing and then threaten to put the boy into a dog cage.

The father says his son is still experiencing the trauma from the incident,

“It’s mostly at night where he cries, he yells “stop them”, and “I’m sorry, don’t hurt me.”
