Three people are under arrest in Newark, N.J., after a video surfaced that showed a naked young man being whipped because of his father's debt.
 
Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio says the three young adults, who are affiliated with a street gang, are charged with aggravated assault and robbery.

 
The video shows a 21-year-old being forced to strip and then whipped with a belt, supposedly because his father owed someone $20.
 
DeMaio says the victim sustained welts and abrasions during the August attack. Police say the man didn't require hospitalization.
 
Newark Mayor Cory Booker criticized people for not coming forward sooner.
