On Tuesday, the same day the 30-minute video was uploaded by a woman, police say they spotted the victim walking on a West Side street in a state of distress.
In a press conference on Thursday, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said: "The actions in that video are reprehensible.He is filmed being kicked and punched by the ruthless gang who were heard shouting "f*** Donald Trump. And when he was forced to drink dirty toilet water the suspects forced him to say "f*** Donald Trump." At one point they cut the man's hair until his scalp bled before flicking cigarette ash into the wound.He was discovered when neighbours downstairs complained to cops about the noise during the attack and the foursome responded by kicking down their door.The gang of black teenagers made the 18-year-old victim drink toilet water while taunting him with racial slurs and beating him.The live stream - which has now been deleted - showed the victim cowering in a corner with his arms tied and his mouth gagged.That along with racism have absolutely no place in the city of Chicago or anywhere else for that matter, against anyone regardless of their race, gender, state of mental health or any other identifying factor." It was revealed by cops the man knew his attackers and had been driving around with them for two days before a playfight with Hill turned nasty. The victim, who was initially reported missing on Monday night by his mother, was able to escape the apartment after four or five hours of torture.
