A criminal complaint states Dwight Pierre Lewis, 31, faces one count of third-degree assault.
The complaint says a man went to the Minneapolis Police Department to report that he was punched in the mouth by a man outside of Target Center. The man had to receive multiple stitches for his injuries.
Police confirmed the assault was captured by a news outlet and posted online. Police used the footage and other available video to identify the suspect as Lewis.
Lewis turned himself in to police Monday and admitted he was the person in the video who punched the victim.
