Newark Man Beaten, Stripped And Whipped Over $20 Debt

NEWARK, N.J. — Three people are under arrest in New Jersey after a video surfaced showing a naked man being whipped because of his father’s debt.

Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio said Wednesday that the three men who are in custody are affiliated with a gang.

They were identified as 22-year-old Ahmad Holt, 31-year-old Raheem Clark and 23-year-old Jamaar Gray. Police say Holt administered the beating, using a belt provided by Clark. Charges include robbery and aggravated assault. Police say only one of the men has an attorney, but they didn’t provide a name.

The video shows a 21-year-old man being forced to strip and then whipped with a belt, supposedly because his father owed someone $20.

 Correction: The guy made him say "Doggy dog's world" and not "Dog eats dog world."

DeMaio says the victim suffered welts and abrasions during the August attack but didn’t require hospitalization.
