We're digging for more answers after the latest attack by violent teens downtown.

Kenneth Matthews is out on bond and facing charges for alleged attempts to steal cell phones. 

Recently, the RTA police busted him for trying to steal a woman's cell phone at the West 25th Rapid Station.

Matthews is also charged for trespassing at Tower City.

Records show he was hanging there after police told him repeatedly to leave.

Ronald Reid Williams is also charged with the attack on Army vet Matthew Robinson. 

A 16-year old girl, who police say videotaped the violence with her cell phone, was also arrested.

Robinson tells 19 Action News he was jumped and racial slurs were yelled at him.
No one stepped in to help him. 

He says, "I think that's a shame. The whole time I'm thinking protect myself and don't let anybody get behind me."

This attack happened on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 at East 6th and Euclid by the three assailants mentioned above and other young thugs who haven't been identified.

In recent months, there has been a rash of beatings downtown Cleveland from violent teenagers.
