A 30-year-old Detroit man was arrested by Roseville detectives at a house in Eastpointe.

Video from inside Apollo Lanes shows the two men violently attacking an employee after they were asked to leave, according to police.

The men were part of a group that was at the bowling alley on Gratiot Avenue in Roseville around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

While they were bowling, the group became unruly and started causing a disturbance, officials said. They were asked to leave by a 28-year-old Roseville man who works at the bowling alley, police said.

Several members of the group surrounded the bowling counter where the employee was standing, officials said. The 31-year-old man reached over the counter and punched the employee in the face while the 30-year-old man stepped behind the counter and began to violently beat the employee, according to authorities.
