PATERSON - A defense attorney representing a teen connected to a video of a man being punched in the face has told News 12 that his client will turn himself in to Paterson police on Tuesday.

Officers have been searching for the 17-year-old boy, who is shown walking up to a man and suddenly punching him in the face at the corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Van Houten Street. Police say they know the suspect's identity.

Police have already arrested a 16-year-old boy who they say filmed the assault after he turned himself into police Saturday.

Investigators say they became aware of video of the so-called "knockout game" assault after it was posted on social media.

The victim's name has not been released. He was treated and released from St. Joseph's Hospital.
