BAY VILLAGE, Ohio – Bay Village Police have identified five male suspects ages 14-17 believed to be responsible for dumping a bucket of urine and spit on a teen with special needs after tricking him into a fake ice bucket challenge.

Over the weekend, comedian Drew Carey and other celebrities offered to donate $10,000 to help police find the suspects.

However, police said that the reward money won’t be necessary, because they have identified the “participants.”

“Regarding the celebrities offering rewards to help find who committed this terrible act, reward money is not necessary as we have identified the participants. However, we are grateful for their offers,” Bay Village Police Chief Mark Spaetzel said.
