BAY VILLAGE, OH (WOIO) - The group of teens who poured a bucket of feces and urine on a classmate with autism as part of a fake ALS Ice Bucket Challenge have been identified.
Bay Village Police Chief Mark Spaetzel confirmed with reporter Scott Taylor that police identified the suspects involved in the incident.
The teens allegedly convinced the 14-year-old victim to do the challenge, but instead of dumping water and ice on him, they chose to fill the bucket with feces, urine, cigarette butts and spit.
Police were notified after the recorded prank was posted on Instagram.
Since then, the Bay Village community has responded in a big way to show support for the 14-year-old boy. A vigil protesting bullying was held a few days after the incident.

At this time, it is unknown what charges will be filed. School officials say no disciplinary action will be taken until after police have completed their investigation.
His family is still outraged.
"It shouldn't happen to any child with special needs or not," said David Mensen, the boy's father.
