NEWARK - A disturbing video making the rounds online has triggered a police investigation in Newark.

The disturbing two-and-a-half minute long clip shows a teen being stripped naked in the streets and beaten with a belt all while strangers walk by.

The audio reveals that the entire ordeal happened because the apparent victim's father owed someone $20.

Police just learned of the video's existence late last week after receiving several phone calls about it.

Authorities are working to determine whether the clip was shot in Newark and to uncover the identities of the people in the clip.
