Baltimore (CNN) -- Baltimore police say they made an arrest in a violent robbery in March that left a man battered and stripped of his clothes on a street while onlookers laughed and did nothing to help.
Police arrested Aaron Parsons, 20, Friday evening for his alleged involvement in the March 18 incident captured by cell phone videos that went viral nationwide. He faces multiple counts of robbery, theft and reckless endangerment, police said.
The victim was headed to his hotel from a downtown Baltimore club when he was attacked, according to a police report. The man, who had been drinking, told police he could not recall exactly what happened. However, the videos fill in the blanks.
In them, a man is seen standing unsteadily against a row of mailboxes. A crowd starts to gather and women dance suggestively against him. Someone notices his watch and a hand seems to grab something from one of his front pockets.

Well, we all know what this society does with rabid dogs.
Only one arrest? Well, its a start. A whole lot of people need to be locked up, but they would probably just see it as a promotion.
Some advice for idiots who show up at baseball stadiums and drink to excess...then drink to further excess at bars just outside the stadium...there are thousands of hoodlums looking to rob you. My advice....drink within reason at the stadium and walk back to your hotel bar before going excessively.
Walk back to the hotel, in a pack, with sober friends.
Always be sane, sober and maintain situational awareness in the city, especially if you cannot CCW.
Most thugs are cowards, and will not attack a strong, aware victim. Leave the IPOD in the hotel.
zim zim zim..........
I might go to a “city” like Baltimore (or Phili or Cleveland) for a conference, but I’ll never leave the hotel.
New York, on the other hand, is safer than a number of southern states - so it’s a fun place to visit.
Throwing Skittles will often distract feral mobs.
Video went online nearly a month ago. they finally make ONE arrest.
They had to get the reward money high enough. Or someone with warrants wanted to give the suspect up in exchange for some leniency on some tickets.
He looks like Obamas son, if he had one.
Yea. Almost a month. I bet they tried and tried and tried to figure out how to blame it on the white guy. They couldn’t, so they made an arrest.
