Criminally stupid

We all know that teenagers are stupid, but sometimes, there's an extra-strength level of stupidity that lands them in the slammer:
Scarsdale police Lt. Bryant Clark said the 50-year-old New Rochelle man was beaten by a group of young men at about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday while he was waiting for a bus home from the Scarsdale Public Library, the White Plains (N.Y.) News-Journal reported Tuesday.

Clark said the attackers took the man's briefcase and fled the scene in a car.

However, he said investigators got a break in the case when the victim received a phone call Wednesday from a group of young men who claimed to be his attackers.

"They actually called him to taunt him about the beating,'' Clark said. "That's what ultimately led to their arrests."
The five young men, who are all between 17 and 19 years old, and who are apparently unfamiliar with the concept of caller ID, were tracked to the home they made the call from, where the cops also found the man's stolen briefcase. Dumbasses.
