MEXICO CITY (AP) — The case of a wealthy Mexican man seen on video beating a doorman at his apartment building is stirring anger among Mexicans stung in recent months by a series of class-discrimination scandals.

The Mexico City prosecutors office has not confirmed the authenticity of the surveillance camera footage posted Tuesday on YouTube. But the office has issued a charge report that matches the location and actions seen on the video.

Prosecutors say Miguel Sacal is charged with causing injuries to a doorman July 8 in the lobby of an apartment building in the upscale neighborhood of Bosques de las Lomas.

The crime report alleges Sacal asked the doorman to get him a jack for his car and beat the man when he refused.
