Downtown Austin Beating Caught On Camera

Updated: Monday, February 3 2014, 05:25 PM CST

A cell phone video circulating online shows two men getting beat and robbed near Downtown Austin's entertainment district.

The video appears to show an angry mob targeting the men near the 900 block of East 6th Street. The attack happened on Jan. 26 but the video began circulating online over the weekend.

At one point one of the victims is knocked to the ground and kicked in the head.

"Obviously there was a fight, and assault, there appears to be a theft portion as well. Could be robbery by assault," says Sgt. Jonathan Herring with the Austin Police Department. "There's more to the story then what's seen here."

Police are asking for the person who shot the video to come forward. No arrests have been made.
