A Rochester teen, currently on probation, has been charged with assault in connection with a brutal attack at a playground on Orchard Street.

The video was posted online last week by someone watching the attack. In the video, someone rips a young man out of a picnic table and throws him on the ground and then continues to beat him. Then there is another assault on a different young man trying to keep his bike. In the video, the attacker gets on the stolen bike and rides away, leaving many wishing there were more parents around.

Investigators tell News10NBC the suspect is 15 years old. His name and photo will not be released due to his age.
