MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – We now know the names of the three teens charged with attacking a man in Overton Park.

Police say 16-year-old James Moss, 17-year-old Inell Crayton, and 14-year-old Davekio Bateman assaulted John Slater while he was walking in the park Sunday.

They stole his wallet and I-Phone before taking off on bikes.

An I-phone app tracked the teens to Jackson and North Merton where they were arrested.

"I could literally watch. I saw the phone," said Slater. "Ride up west drive, over on North drive and then the next thing I saw was they were up over on Jackson."

Slater insists Overton Park is safe, and wants criminals to know if they do something there - they will get caught.
