Where did he get the idea that it was appropriate behaviour to assault another person?
NIP THIS NOW. Yes, you've taken things, but since you didn't talk with him, he doesn't know why. You need to tell him that his behaviour went BEYOND inappropriate into borderline criminal.
And, I have to ask, why this hasn't been addressed before now. A well behaved kid doesn't just decide to participate in a beat down 'because it's there'. He's been most likely being a bully and an ass for awhile now. Address the situation immediately. I'd get him in counseling to find out why he feels the need to physically assault others, why he needs that activity to feel 'big', and what he is getting out of it, emotionally. Because he is getting a charge out of it somehow.
Oh, and the FIRST thing I'd do is get rid of his 'friend' group. Stellar examples of juvenile delinquents there.
Be firm now, and be strong, and your kid will turn out fine.
