Three SE Missouri teens accused in assault

BLOOMFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Three southeast Missouri high school students have been accused of videotaping an assault on another teenager and then posting the videotape online.

The Daily American Republic reports that three Dexter teenagers face juvenile charges in Stoddard County of second and third-degree assault, as well as criminal responsibility.

They're accused of using duct tape to bind the victim, then punching and kicking the victim several times. Police said they're also accused of burning and urinating on the victim, also a teenager, while the attack was videotaped.

Police said the video was then posted on YouTube.

The three have been scheduled for detention hearings Friday before Juvenile Judge Joe Satterfield, who was decide whether the teens would remain in custody or be released.
