DETROIT (AP) -- A 16-year-old has been arrested in the videotaped beating of a man during gay pride celebration in downtown Detroit.
Police say Friday that the teen was part of a group of five to eight males who punched and kicked 20-year-old Christin Howard.
The gay rights group Equality Michigan has said Howard was taking a photo Sunday with a friend along the popular RiverWalk when the men attacked him and used homophobic slurs.
A cellphone video shows Howard fighting back. Police continue to seek the identities of the other attackers.
Motor City Pride was held last weekend along the riverfront.
