Three New Hampshire teenagers have been indicted for a disturbing attack on an 18-year-old autistic man.
Israel Junior Rivera, Paul Dustin and Brandon Lemieux, who are all 19, were indicted for the incident that allegedly happened in Seabrook in October.
The victim was beaten before being burned with cigarettes, having his hair set on fire and spat on. Video of the incident was then posted to Snapchat.
Court documents say Dustin and Lemieux punched the victim once each and that Rivera allegedly repeatedly kicked and punched him over two hours.
'For approximately two hours, I was at South Main Street being humiliated and physically and verbally abused and harassed,' the teen wrote in his statement.
He also told police many people there were recording the incident and posting it on Snapchat.
'After that I was completely humiliated, most of the people at the house were spitting on me, physically abusing me, flicking ash in my hair, kicking me and making me admit crimes I did not commit,' he told police.
The victim told police he was left with 'very sore' ribs and stomach, showing an officer that he had bruising on his stomach and swelling on his torso when he went to report the assault.
The officer wrote he advised the teen to stop associating with his assailants. The officer then spoke with a witness who showed video footage of the assault, leading to the charges.
It's alleged Rivera demanded the 18-year-old autistic teen admit to smashing an acquaintance's car with cinder blocks which Rivera had previously done a month earlier. The victim had said he was with Rivera the night the car was vandalized.
Three teenagers are accused of assaulting a teen for hours. Israel Junior Rivera, Paul Dustin and Brandon Lemieux, all 19, were indicted for the assault in Seabrook, New Hampshire.
