A group of young men attacked Nicholas Thomas, 15, at Shelby Drive and Elvis Presley Boulevard Friday night. The attackers held him on the ground while they ripped off his shirt and shoes.

Police say they have arrested one of the men responsible for the attack. They say they caught Ditrizes Pugh, 25, trying to run away from the scene with a stun gun in his pocket.

Pugh faces several charges related to the attack. He's in jail under a $75,000 bond. His next court date is set for August 28.
