(KMOV) - Seven teens all between the ages of 12 and 14 are now free after they were accused of beating a 52-year-old man as part of the so-called "knock-out game."

The attack happened on October 21st, leaving Matt Quain with a broken jaw, several stitches and a black eye.

Prosecutors had no choice but  to drop the case when the key witness, a 13-year-old girl, failed to show up for court Monday.

News 4's Lindsay Bramson spoke with the victim and will have reaction tonight on News 4 at 5 and 6 p.m.
