Atlanta Cops Arrest Second Suspect In Brutal Videotaped Assault Of Gay Man
Police today arrested a second suspect in connection with the videotaped beating of a gay man outside an Atlanta convenience store.
Accompanied by a lawyer, Dorian Lavale Moragne, 19, surrendered to cops around 4 PM. Police report that Moragne will be charged with robbery and aggravated assault for his role in the February 4 attack on Brandon White.

Video of the brutal assault went viral shortly after it was posted online. In the clip, one of the assailants (and two onlookers) can be heard referring to White as a “faggot,” and announcing “Jack City, no faggots.” The convenience store has been a favorite gathering spot for members of the Pittsburgh Jack City Gang.
Cops last Saturday arrested Christopher Deon Cain, 19, for attacking the 20-year-old White. Investigators are seeking to arrest a third man--whose identity they know--seen in the video.
Over the past 18 months, Moragne has been arrested four times (excluding today’s collar). He has been charged with auto theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, criminal damage, identity fraud, and felony obstruction.
