Autistic Boy Gang Beaten, Robbed, Kidnapped

A 16-year-old Saint Paul, MN, boy with autism was gang beaten, handcuffed, robbed, kidnapped and finally shot in the face with a bb gun at point blank range by three adults and two teens.

Tiffany Ann Clock, 21, Anthony Martin Ramos, 24, and Trenton Eugene Johnson, 22, were each charged with one count of aggravated first-degree robbery and kidnapping for the purpose to terrorize. Two other defendants in the case, ages 17 and 15, were likewise charged in juvenile court.

The 16-year-old victim remains unidentified to protect him.

One of the teens lured the victim to a secluded area where the five surprised the victim and then took turns repeatedly punching, beating and knocking down the disabled boy. They also stole his CD player, camera, phone and money.

While beating him the five were also telling him they knew where he lived and would “return and hurt him and his family” according to the criminal complaint on file at the Ramsey County courthouse.

Anthony Ramos allegedly then shot the victim in the cheek and the left side of his head with a BB gun at point blank range. After a few more threats to his family, the group then reportedly “made the victim run around in circles and laugh out loud” according to the complaint.

The five finally left their victim face down in the snow bleeding. The complaint states that he told police that “up until he was shot with the BB gun he thought the gun was a real gun and he thought he would die.”

The following video is a local media report of the incident:

“This was an outrageous attack on a most vulnerable victim. This office will prosecute these cases vigorously,” said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi.

Each felony count carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. No word is available on the condition of the 16-year-old victim.

  1. Wow didnt know my ex and her new man woulda have done that… they are lucky the police got them first or it would be me hunting them down.. i too have autism and i cant let this sh*t sit.

    1. Dale,

      Surprise, surprise when I found that your ISP address is in St Paul, MN. If you are truly the father of the child (something I very much doubt), then you might want to be more involved in your son’s life. This should have never happened. Maybe the kid has too much freedom to associate with the wrong element.

      1. which child? i have no relation to any of the people involved except prior relations with Tiffany and im utterly shocked she would do this.

  2. Kids with Autism aren’t ‘victims’ anymore than any other kid. The sad thing is that these adults picked on a minor, but him having autism doesn’t make it any worse. Well I guess I should say, most kids. There are people with SEVERE autism who might be easier to victimize, but I know many people with autism and they are generally normal except for a few social problems. But really, what is normal?
