Police arrest Pathmark attackers

Police have arrested three Feltonville teenagers who allegedly beat and robbed a man in the Franklin Mills Pathmark Saturday night.

Tomas Eanes, 18, and Jose Ruiz and Kevin Tavarez, both 17, are charged with robbery, aggravated assault, conspiracy and related offenses in the attack in the store's frozen food aisle. Tavarez and Eanes are charged as adults and will be arraiged later today.

Store surveillance video shows the trio and an unidentified female approaching and encircling a 47-year-old shopper, who manuevered his shopping cart to protect himself. But one teen hit him with a bottle, and the others beat him when he fell and stole $100 from him, police said. They fled in a Chevrolet Aveo. One of the teens also shot video of the attack and posted it on YouTube.
