CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Police have charged two 17-year-old boys with beating a 65-year-old man in a dispute over a parking space in central Pennsylvania.

Pennlive.com reports that Carlisle police filed the charges but are not releasing the boy's names because they're charged in juvenile court.

Police say the attack happened about 2 p.m. Friday and was captured by city surveillance cameras. Police say one teen beat the man with a tree branch then punched him. They say the other teen threw the man to the ground and kicked him in the face.

Investigators say both teens left before officers arrived, but they were identified by witnesses and through the video.

The teens are charged with simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.
