A video spreading around shocked South County households shows two teens savagely beating a 16-year-old boy on an elementary school playground in Ladera Ranch, according to sheriff's deputies who have arrested the pair.

Ladera Ranch: Wholesome Community or Den of Crime?

The 24-second video originally posted on the Ladera Ranch No Bullying Facebook page is so disturbing that some initially assumed it was a hoax. Here is the KTLA/Channel 5 version:

The after-school incident May 20 at Chapparal Elementary School led to arrests the following day of Robert Valentin Ayala, 18, and a 17-year-old boy whose name was not released because he is a minor. Ayala pleaded not guilty to charges of felony aggravated assault and battery. He was being held at the Theo Lacy Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The 16- and 17-year-olds were fighting when the younger boy fell to the ground and the young man alleged to be Ayala gave a full kick to the victim's head, according to authorities. The video shows the 17-year-old, the largest of the three teens, going on to repeatedly punch the head of the 16-year-old, who is finished off by the oldest teen doing the wrestling move that has him jumping onto the lifeless victim with his full body weight.

Robert Valentin Ayala faces felony aggravated assault and battery.
The victim was knocked unconscious and, according to the Orange County District Attorney's attorney's office, suffered a concussion, broken nose, cuts and bruises.

"Little bitches! I would love to come up on this going down!" writes someone identifying himself as Michael Edwards-Cote, one of 355 comments left with the Ladera Ranch No Bullying post as of early Wednesday afternoon. "His buddy didn't help him but I sure as hell would! Bullies are cowards! Hope the kid will be ok and the punks get theirs! Try that shit in lacy bitch!"

The post identifies Ayala and the other teen arrestee as Ladera Ranch residents who attend San Juan High School, but law enforcement has them as students at Tesoro High School in nearby Rancho Santa Margarita. Whichever school they attended, Capistrano Unified School District spokesman Stephen Nichols told KCBS/Channel 2, "It's something that we will never tolerate and it's unfortunate this had to happen."

Someone does not look happy in their mugshot!  He is probably not enjoying the consequences of of his actions very much

There used to be an unwritten rule when you knock someone out the fight is over. You don't keep beating a guy after he's knocked out, that is just completely cowardly.

Beating an unconscious person... someone who cant defend themselves. The person that does that, is the pussy.

We need to teach our children well. That's not bullying. That's a full fledged assault. A crime. Kids need to know how to react fast when they see a crime being committed in front of their eyes. Run for safety and call 911 for starters. Maybe?
