WARNING! THIS VIDEO CONTAINS EXTREME VIOLENCE!

On May 12, 2011, 15-year-old Victor, a Zion, Illinois, high school student, was jumped by a vicious mob.

The incident, which was recorded and uploaded to Youtube, took place at Shiloh Park, 2400 Dowie Memorial Drive.

Victor and his girlfriend were savagely beaten by a large group of black and Latino youths - one boy in the crowd appeared to be 8 or 9-years-old.

A black male, wearing a blue t-shirt, was the first person who actually struck Victor. Then, a girl, who appears to be Hispanic, grabbed Victor's girlfriend's hair and pulled her to the ground. Within seconds, all hell broke loose.

According to NBC Chicago, four suspects were arrested. Two of them were apprehended by Zion police officers at the scene.

Victor told the media that he did not provoke the attack, and that he had no idea why he was targeted. But if you listen to the video of the beat down carefully, you can hear one of the instigators saying, "that's that female" and "yeah, that's him".

Once again, I have to warn you. This video is extremely violent:
