Teens beat and kick sleeping homeless man

Their shoes were so bloody that police seized them as evidence.

James Marino and Marc Sico, both 19 and from Medford, Massachusetts, were arrested after they and a third man kicked and beat three homeless men near the Back Bay subway station in Boston. The third man is still being sought.

Marino and Sico were charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, a shod foot, and unarmed assault. They were released on personal recognizance and told to stay out of Boston between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Officers on patrol around 3:15 a.m. spotted three men beating a fourth man outside the station. When the men saw police, they ran. Police chased and caught them.

The victim, who was bleeding from his face, nose and mouth, told police he was sleeping when three men awakened him by punching him repeatedly in the face. Two other homeless men also said they had been attacked.
