(KMOV) -- St. Louis Police say they have arrested a 17-year-old male in connection with an attack caught on video in the Delmar Loop. 

The video, which was taken Sunday near the Pageant, shows a group of people punching and kicking a man who was walking on Delmar Boulevard on his way to the Metro stop.  It's the apparent latest video showing the "Knockout Game;" where one or more person tries to knock out an unsuspecting victim.

The victim in this case, who wanted to remain anonymous, suffered a concussion and had to get 19 stitches after he was blindsided in the attack.
