Ogden police said a middle school student alerted a school resource officer about a video of the Dec. 2 beating on YouTube, which led police to the suspects.

Police said the beating was over a perceived gang-related insult. The victim was severely beaten and suffered a broken eye socket.

Three juveniles also were arrested in the incident.
