ST. LOUIS., Mo. -- St. Louis Police say they have arrested two teenagers in connection with an attack caught on video in the Delmar Loop. 

Police announced Tuesday afternoon that a 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old male were taken into custody.

The video 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 knockout 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.

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. 

The man told News 4 he had never met his attackers before.  He said he doesn't remember being punched, but does remember the group following him moments before the assault.

News 4 handed the video over to the St. Louis Police Department, who said late Monday they are "confident" they'll be able to find the suspects.

No arrests have been made at this point.  News 4 will continue to follow this case closely and update this story with any new developments.
