Police looking for group who beat deaf victim in the Central West End

ST. LOUIS — Residents in the Central West End are expressing concern after two assaults and St. Louis police are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the suspects.

In both cases, suspects knocked down very vulnerable people: one an elderly man, the other a deaf man. It appears the suspects did it for no reason at all.

According to police, the deaf man was attacked Sunday around 9:30 p.m. near Euclid and Lindell. The group struck the man several times in the face and head. He suffered multiple cuts to his face, one of which needed stitches.

In the second case, an elderly man was walking his dog near the 4300 block of McPherson when a man on a bicycle rode by, got off his bike, and pushed the man down.

Anyone with information on either case is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
