Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio said Wednesday that the three men who are in custody are affiliated with a gang.

They were identified as 22-year-old Ahmad Holt, 31-year-old Raheem Clark and 23-year-old Jamaar Gray. Police say Holt administered the beating, using a belt provided by Clark. Charges include robbery and aggravated assault. Police say only one of the men has an attorney, but they didn’t provide a name.
