A man has been arrested in connection to a case of bullying that police say led a teenager to attempt suicide.

Police say 18-year-old Antoine Young made a video of one teen attacking another on his way home from Tates Creek High School last month and they say he also encouraged the attacker.

Officers say when the incident was over, Young took the victim's shoes and backpack.

Investigators say they first heard of the crime when the alleged victim's mother told police that he was afraid to go back to school because he afraid he might be attacked again.

It was then they say they found out that the boy had tried to hang himself so he wouldn't have to go back to school.

Young is facing robbery charges.

He is expected to be in court tomorrow.
