The first video purportedly shows the young boy taking a bottled beverage from a cooler at the Krispy Kreme donut shop at South Maple Street in Akron without paying for the item. Employees at the store can be heard in the video telling the young boy that there are cameras inside.
The second video purportedly shows a woman bringing the boy back inside the shop and repeatedly hitting him with a belt. The boy can be heard apologizing for his actions in the video.
This first video is similar to others that have been posted on the web, reportedly imitating the actions of another social media user on Instagram (boonk.ig).
