Five teenage members of a motorcycle gang assaulted a drunken man, apparently copying scenes from a violent video game, police said on Tuesday.
They attacked the 31-year-old man, who was sitting on the curb of a road in Gwank-gu, southern Seoul, at around 4 a.m. on Sunday.
Police believe they were trying to copy a scene from “Grand Theft Auto IV.”
The computer game, rated over-18, features the main character wielding guns and escaping in stolen vehicles including motor bikes. The teens did not have a gun.
The police said they requested arrest warrants for two of the teens and booked the three other attackers without detention.
