A Memphis teen caught on camera attacking a Kroger employee in September was indicted Thursday, according to Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.

Nineteen-year-old Raheem Richardson was indicted on charges of aggravated riot and acting in concert to wit, aggravated assault.

Eight teens were arrested in the incident outside the Kroger at Highland and Poplar on September 6. The other teens were handled in Juvenile Court. All of them admitted to aggravated riot and aggravated assault.

Witnesses identified Richardson as one of the assailants who attacked a 17-year-old Kroger employee who was gathering shopping carts in the parking lot.

One witness recorded the attack on a cell phone. The video shows the victim getting punched, kicked, and knocked unconscious when the suspects threw heavy pumpkins at him.

Richardson is being held in the Shelby County Jail.

If convicted, he could face eight to 30 years in prison.
