AKRON, Ohio (WJW) – The Akron Police Department announced a second arrest this week in an attack on a group of veterans outside an American Legion.

On October 30, police say a volunteer was outside American Legion Post 449 on Kenmore Blvd. when a group of men drove up in a car.

Surveillance video showed the men start attacking the volunteer.

Two men inside the American Legion came outside to help.

They were attacked too.

The video shows three men beating and kicking the veterans, throwing them to the ground.

The men got into the car and drove away while the veterans were still on the ground.

Police say Shaun Husk, Jr., 19, Cody Sell, 19, and Michael Baratko, 25, were responsible for the attack.

Akron police announced Wednesday that Sell was in custody. Husk was arrested earlier this month.
