15-year-old Orange City boy arrested after "prejudice attack" on another teen, deputies say

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - A 15-year-old Orange City boy was arrested after a "prejudice attack" on another teen, Volusia deputies said.

The teen was arrested on an enhanced felony battery charge Friday in Daytona Beach after repeatedly punching a 16-year-old victim in an attack motivated by prejudice against gay people.

According to the report, the attack happened on Friday morning at a SMA Healthcare residential adolescent treatment facility at 3875 Tiger Bay Road, Daytona Beach. The surveillance video shows the defendant said something to the victim, who was sitting down, before walking over to him and starting punching. The defendant climbed onto the victim and punched him multiple times before the attack was broken up by staff.

The victim explained to a deputy that the defendant continuously calls him by a common slur used against gay people.
