LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two Las Vegas brothers have been arrested in the beating of another student that was recorded and uploaded to YouTube.

Clark County School District police say the 13- and 15-year-old boys were booked Friday into juvenile detention on battery charges.

The 13-year-old is accused of confronting the victim outside an apartment complex, then punching him in the face and knocking him to the side of an apartment.

The 15-year-old then allegedly punched the victim several times, kicked him and flashed gang signs.

School police say the suspects and the victim are district students, and the victim is a special needs student.

Video of the incident captured by another male was uploaded Wednesday to YouTube. The video went viral with more than 50,000 page views before it was later removed.
