A Fort Myers mother says she feels powerless after her 11-year-old son was pinned down at his neck and stripped naked by two middle school girls.
At first glance the minute-long YouTube video looks like kids playing. But it soon takes a disturbing turn as the boy cries out for help, humiliated and pinned down to the ground.
"Mommy!," he yells.
The video, which has since been taken down, shows two Dunbar Middle School girls holding the boy down in broad daylight, inside a gated community.
The boy begs the girls to stop as the rip off his bathing suit, leaving him naked lying on the ground.
The title of the video, which was online for more than 24 hours, says the boy is getting "owned."
"I'm surprised these girls can just do that and get away with it," said the boy's mother. "Or there are no repercussions."
Fox 4 is not releasing the names of anyone involved.
The mother says Fort Myers police filled out a report but weren't much help at first.
The officer "said he didn't know if there was a crime committed but said it looked like a prank."
The police report taken Tuesday described the incident twice as a "prank" and says "police incident closed."
"Nobody cares, nobody cares," the mother said. "If this was my son doing it to a little girl there would have been lights and sirens at my door. LINK
