Another beating by three black young men, maybe teens, who said it was for Trayvon Martin. Even though this broadcast chickens out of mentioning the race of the men who did the attacking, Greta pointed out tonight that they were indeed black:
WREG – A jogger says three men attacked him in retaliation for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.
The attack happened on Highway 51 in Senatobia, Miss., Sunday night.
The victim told News Channel 3 and investigators the men drove up to him, asked him to get into their car, implying they had a gun
The man says the men drove him miles away in silence before pulling him from their car and attacking him saying, “This is for Trayvon.”
The man had a few cuts and scrapes and a bruised face. He was found on a deserted road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss.
The man, who is white, told police the men who attacked him are black.
The three men may have been in a white Chevrolet Malibu or Impala.
One of the men should have a bite mark on his forearm.
