PLEASANTVILLE, New Jersey -- Three suspects have been arrested in connection to the assault of a man whose body was recovered two days later in Pleasantville, New Jersey.

The three were taken into custody on Wednesday evening, the Pleasantville Police Department said.

Police say the suspects assaulted 19-year-old Irving Mayren-Guzman outside the Centerfolds Cabaret on Jan. 23.



Police said he was last seen at the club with two friends and left on foot by himself.

Police say after the assault, the teen was reported missing.

Mayren-Guzman's body was recovered on Jan. 25 around 9:30 a.m. in the marsh off Delilah Road just east of the gentlemen's club following a two-day search that included K-9s, drones and helicopters.
