Detectives Close Case on Alleged Facebook Assault

CORPUS CHRISTI - We have new information on the investigation into video posted on Facebook of a 15 year old being beaten up by a man.

The Corpus Christi Police Department tells us they have closed the case because those involved told detectives the incident was staged.

A man named Manuel Moya originally posted the video online. It shows an older man beating on a teenaged boy he refuses to defend himself from the onslaught of punches.

The boy's mother was was accused of orchestrating the attack because the boy may have stolen from her.

His own father came forward to us last week after hearing about the video for the first time. He's not convinced the fight was staged.
