Baltimore police have arrested a second suspect in the videotaped beating of a man outside the city's downtown courthouse and are looking for two other people in the attack watched by tens of thousands on the Internet.
Shayone Davis, 20, is being held on $750,000 bail on charges of armed robbery and two counts of assault. Police have identified her as the woman seen in the video dancing, then slapping the victim across the face after he had been knocked to the ground unconscious on March 18.
Baltimore police said the man had his wallet and keys stolen, and that the female suspect assaulted him with a high-healed shoe. That makes the case an armed robbery, according a police spokesman.
Davis, of the 5200 block of Wilton Heights Ave., in Northwest Baltimore's Arlington neighborhood, was arrested on Thursday but police withheld the information as they sought two other men. Police plan to release the names and photos of the other suspects later today. They have not been arrested.
The man who allegedly punched the 20-year-old victim, Aaron Parson, was arrested earlier this month on charges of assault and robbery. The party promoter who lives in Rosedale is being held on $500,000 bail.
Police did not know of the attack until the violent video was posted on the Internet. Police then retraced calls and found a victim who had reported being attacked and robbed, but couldn't remember when or by whom. Police then linked his story to the video.
