AMMAN — The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) personnel have arrested two suspects for allegedly assaulting a citizen and videotaping the attack, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Tuesday, quoting a Public Security Department (PSD) statement. 

The video purportedly shows two people physically and verbally assaulting a man. 

A security source stated that after the video circulated on social media, the PSD started an investigation, adding that two suspects were identified and arrested. 

Preliminary investigation showed that the attack came as a result of a previous case and disputes involving the suspects and the victim, the source said. 

The source pointed out that the investigation was still ongoing and suspects will be referred to the judiciary. 

However, the PSD warned the public against circulating the video or its republication, noting that anyone who posts the video will be held legally accountable. 


The CID personnel also identified the suspect who recorded the video and further investigation showed that the suspect also took part in the alleged assault, according to  Petra.
