The victim, Roy Swan, told police that three women, who were armed with a wrench, accused him of stealing their laundry. When he said he didn’t know anything about the missing items, he said they got mad and started to fight him.
A witness jumped in and helped break up the fight. That’s when the three women fled the scene.
One of the women later returned with three men, who hit the victim with a wrench and proceeded to punch and kick him. The assault was captured on a surveillance camera.
Swan tells WMC Action News 5 that he is still recovering from the attack.
“I can’t really chew or eat food or anything for six weeks,” he said. “I eat like, Ensure, or mashed potatoes. They don’t want me to chew because they said if I do my face might cave in.”
Swan wants the people responsible locked up.
“If I’d had my pistol or anything, I probably would’ve shot every one of them,” he said. “I don’t know if that would’ve been a good idea but sometimes under that circumstance you overdo it … You gotta look on the bright side because you don’t want to go solving your own damn problems.”
Police are hoping the public will be able to identify the people responsible in the surveillance photos and video.
