KINGSTON, Jamaica — Police in Trinidad are now trying to identify three security guards who mercilessly beat an old man at an automated banking machine in Chaguanas.
The muscular guards repeatedly kicked, stomped punched and boxed the elderly man who they accused of stealing an ABM and identification card.
A video of the incident can be viewed on the social network website youtube.com under the title 'TRINI SECURITY BOOTS UP'.
In the video the well stocked guards are seen delivering kicks, loud slaps to the small-framed man's face and punches to his upper body as he squeals for mercy and writhes in pain while on the floor.
As the man lay on the ground in obvious pain the guards barked "Get up! Go!, Get up Boy! Run!" at their helpless victim.
As the man crawls out of the vestibule on his buttocks the guards trail him outside and continue their brutal beating stomping him in the stomach and stepping on his head rendering him immobile.
After a few more hefty blows the man is allowed to limp away as his slippers are thrown at him.
The video was reportedly recorded by one of the guards and posted on youtube.
