DETROIT (WWJ) - Two of the three suspects seen on video assaulting a man at a Detroit bus stop have turned themselves in. 

Detroit police said a 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy voluntarily appeared at the 5th Precinct Wednesday evening. The older suspect was arrested, police said, and the younger one was detained. 

Expected charges against the two are pending. Their names were not released. 

According to investigators, at around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 10, the 23-year-old victim was sitting on a bench in the 17100 block of E. Warren Ave., waiting for a bus, when a group of teens walked up. 

As seen in surveillance video released by police, one of the teens punched the victim on the side of his head, knocking him to the ground. While he was lying there unconscious, two other teens punched and kicked the victim. (Note: The faces of those not involved in the assault are blurred in the video).

The suspects fled the scene on foot, police said, and the victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A third unidentified suspect remained at large on Friday.
