Eleven year-old bullied: Bullies post video on Facebook

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Police have arrested two teens, a 14-year-old, and a 15-year-old. Both are facing kidnapping charges, accused of holding an autistic boy against his will. The teens also recorded the incident and posted it to social media.

The video starts with the teens carrying away the 11-year-old boy as he screams for help.

"I don't want to die, I don't want to die, I don't want to die," repeats the victim. His captors then say, "You're going to die tonight."

The teens at one point threatened to put the boy into a dog's cage. "Stop crying or we're going to hurt you, you want a cut?" asked one of the teens.

"As a parent it killed me inside, it really did. I'm not one to cry a lot, but the tears were coming down just to see my son scream for his life," said the boy's mother.

The boy's dad didn't know his son had been bullied by neighborhood kids. He was visiting a friend's house, and someone told the father about the video the teens posted it on Facebook. He watched it and then called police.

"They go around the neighborhood; they bully everyone around," he said.

He also said his 11-year-old son is still traumatized.

"It's mostly at night where he cries, he yells "stop them", and "I'm sorry, don't hurt me," said the father.

"I was just hoping to avoid this happening to someone else's kid, to put them through the trauma it's put us through," he said.

Police say the the teen suspects told officers the 11 year-old was insulting them before this all started. Now the teens are behind bars at a juvenile detention center.
