The Visalia Police Department says 25-year-old Corey Cornutt and 29-year-old Savannah Grillot were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy in connection to at least four beatings that took place near their home in Visalia, California. The beatings took place between July and November of 2019.

Police say videos of the assaults were posted on YouTube. In the videos, police say the suspects appeared to plant a bicycle in the front yard of their home, unattended, and wait for someone passing by to stop and attempt to steal it.

When someone would try to make off with the bike, the suspects would rush from the house and assault the person with a baseball bat.

The four victims who were identified in the investigation suffered non life-threatening injuries, police say.
