Police have released surveillance video that captured a violent mugging on Charleston's West Side earlier this week.
The video shows the parking lot of the Bigley Avenue Go-Mart -- you can see Gregory Moran, 31, being punched, kicked and tasered by five people. Police said the group stole about $40 from Moran.
Moran told police the mugging started after he refused to buy marijuana from one of the suspects, who he knew.
Five people were arrested shortly after the crime, but police are still hoping to locate witnesses to help build their case. If you have any information that could help in the investigation, call Charleston police at 304-348-6480.
