Fox 16 went to police yesterday to see if they’d heard about a brutal beating recorded on a video, said to have been made in Little Rock, that has been viewed more than a million times on the hugely popular website Worldstar* Hip Hop. Video here. 

One young man whips another young man bloody, apparently over a pair of stolen shoes.

Recognize the neighborhood? Police say they couldn’t pin it down and received no reports on the incident.


*A previous version of this post incorrectly referred to the site as “World War Hip Hop.”
