TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police need help identifying several suspects responsible for beating up a 14-year-old boy and taking his bike.

It happened at the In and Out on Lewis Avenue near West Laskey.

A clerk told police the suspects were acting suspicious in the store, so she asked them to leave. That's when she says the group went up to a boy outside, told him they were in a gang, punched him and stole his bike.

Security cameras caught the suspects in the store, and later on a TARTA bus, shortly after the attack.

"He got confronted by these five individuals, and then punched in the head twice," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan of the Toledo Police. "These are a group of young men we need to get off the streets, and they need to answer for this crime so it doesn't happen to anyone else."

If you have any information on the suspects, call Crimestopper at 419-255-1111.
