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.
Oh I know who Tawana Brawley is. So tell me, how is my story “B.S.”? Is it because in your little world, a group of white kids can’t rape a black woman? Young people in general are unruly.
If you’re going to tell me that a group of young, white men aren’t capable of raping a black girl, I have some swampland in Florida to sell you. I hear it’s really close to the beach.
Once again. I never said that. I pointed that out to you earlier.
I just called your post about a friend BS because it was unnessecarily & gratuitously volunteered.
That means in anyone’s book it is suspect and more than likely BS.
PS: Nice try at entrampment. That doesn’t work here but maybe it works over at Daily Kos. Try them.
Why no charges for any of them that laid a hand on the victim's child?!
Any time during the past 40 years that would make big time news.
Google the story, and post the link. I'd be interested in reading it.
Wait a minute...You tell the other poster a gang of whites raped a black girl, your friend, and there is no news of this, and the rape went unreported in the media?
And as far as you suggesting I am a racist for just asking you to post the story...Well you can go F yourself and the horse you rode in on.
What do you mean 'my people'? Americans? or do you define yourself by your color?
You’re full of it. As far as I can determine, you are making all of this up out of whole cloth to fit your notions. I ain’t buying it.
Hey- its a black on black crime for all you stupid knee-jerkers!
By JIM ADAMS, Star Tribune Last update: July 25, 2008 - 9:29 AM In the wake of recent news reports that a group of young black men at Valleyfair attacked a father defending his daughter, the Scott County attorney's office has been inundated with calls urging that they be charged with a hate crime. But County Attorney Patrick Ciliberto said Thursday that is not an option because both the suspects and the victim are black.
