Six men remain in the Scott County jail following what police call a brutal assault on a father trying to protect his daughter.
Shakopee police say as the crowd was leaving Valleyfair Amusement Park around midnight on the 4th of July, the victim's daughter was confronted by two men.
"The 12-year-old daughter was either touched or slapped in the buttocks area," Scott County Attorney Patrick Ciliberto said. "The father confronted (the men) by yelling at them for what they had done to his daughter," he added.
Police say the two men called their friends, who were also in the park. The group of seven men and a juvenile then confronted the father.
"They beat him to the ground and then, the evidence that we have, when he was on the ground, they used their feet on him. They were kicking him in the face when he was down," Ciliberto said.
According to the criminal complaints, the men were stomping on the 41-year-old father as he lay on the ground, unconscious.
He suffered severe head injuries, including a fractured right orbital bone and possible subdural bleeding on the brain. "We don't know if there are permanent injuries yet," the County Attorney said.
Shakopee Police found the suspects in the parking lot. Seven of them were arrested and one man ran from the scene and police are still looking for him. Of the seven taken into custody, one was a 14-year-old.
The six adults charged and held in jail are Devondre Evans-Lewis, Andrew Shannon, Darris Evans, Terry Arnold, Derry Evans, and Anthony Gildersleeve.
The Scott County Attorney says several of the men have criminal histories and they are all from the Twin Cities metro area. They range in age from 18 to 22-years-old.
All six adults have been charged with 3rd degree felony assault causing substantial bodily harm.
hmmm, “Devondre”... sounds Norwegian
I’d be more than happy to put a bullet into each one of them.
It needs to become known in that jail that these guys are in there for diddling with a 12-year-old girl....
The man-made glowballs warmings made them crazy!!! They are innocent!!
It’s Dubyas fault!!

I don't disagree; however, it is really sad that this country has gotten to the point that sometimes the best chance for justice is prison gang rape.
7 jump him, knock him unconscience, then kick him in the face and head.
Too bad he or someone didn't shoot these a-holes.
What state? I initially thought it might be Valley Fair mall In San Jose/Santa Clara CA...
sending an alert now...
The best outcome would have been a father that stepped back two paces and drew his weapon after the first punch was thrown.
Eight on one? My hand would have been on the grips when they walked over talking tough to my family.
Minnesota? Scandinavian savages at it again, I see.
Why won’t those darn Vikings assimilate?

Tie each one to a barn door, flog him till his back is raw meat, then give his back a salt-water bath.
(...with an uncommon touch)
Valleyfair’s most effective method of public relations is courtesy. Although our guests visit by the thousands, each one deserves to be treated with respect as an individual. We want each guest to feel welcome.
maybe they should have a police force on duty there like Mall of America has.
"The group beat up the father as his wife and daughter looked on, police said."
So the 12 year old daughter gets groped, her father defends her, and then she gets to watch her father almost get beaten to death by a gang of thugs.
My initial comment was, "When the father recovers, they should tie up each of the thugs and allow the father to beat each one with a baseball bat." I was wrong. They just need to take them out and shoot them like you would any other rabid animals.
In the gut. They need to suffer before the end.
