PATERSON - The Paterson teen accused of attacking an older man unprovoked and posting the video on social media has turned himself in to police.
Kristian Gonzalez, 18, was 17 years old at the time of the December attack. He now faces charges of aggravated assault and endangering an injured victim. He will initially be charged as a minor.
The victim was hospitalized, but has since been released.

Defense attorney Harley Breite says that Gonzalez has schizophrenia and takes medication for several psychological issues. Breite did not indicate if Gonzalez had taken his medication on the day of the attack.
A 16-year-old boy accused of encouraging Gonzalez and recording the attack turned himself in Saturday night. He faces the same charges.
Passaic County prosecutors have not said if they will seek to charge either teen as an adult.
