Two Michigan bullies have posted a brutal attack they committed against a disabled man on Facebook, proudly sharing the news with all of their victim’s friends and relatives.
On the morning of November 29, at approximately 8:30 a.m., Shadeed Dontae Bey and Nikey Dashone Walker assaulted a 23-year old man affected by cerebral palsy, as he was preparing to enter Phoenix Place Apartments, located in Pontiac, approximately 30 miles from Detroit.
The victim whose identity hasn’t been disclosed to the public, was about to get inside his apartment, when he was ambushed by the 2 men, who stole his cellphone. As he tried to pursue them, the robbers started violently beating him, ensuring that they would film the entire attack.
The video, which was published online by the two suspects right on the Facebook profile of the person whom they had savagely assaulted as well as on their own pages, clearly shows the disabled man, lying on the staircase floor, after having received a kick to the groin.
As the victim is desperately trying to defend himself by curling his hands into fists in an effort to reject the heavy blows, Walker and Bey can be seen kicking him repeatedly.
They are also extremely preoccupied with filming their deed using the man’s mobile phone, ensuring that no second of their crime goes unrecorded, so that they can later boast about it with their pals. The vicious assault persists unabated for quite some time, even after one of the delinquents remarks that the victim has fallen unconscious.
When law enforcement were called by witnesses and arrived at the scene of the incident, they found the severely injured youngster slumped on the ground, right in front of the apartment building.
According to representatives of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, the 20-year old thugs were eventually apprehended by law enforcement on Monday, November 30, and are currently held in custody, on a $25,000 bond.
A statement was issued by Oakland County Sherriff Michael Bouchard, who took the time to condemn the crime, emphasizing that such violence directed against disabled individuals would not remain unpunished.
Bouchard has also bemoaned the ruthlessness and lack of basic humanity displayed by the perpetrators, when they proceeded to show off their misdeeds, as if they had been worthy of admiration or praise.
The two defendants, who will be facing trial on December 8, have been formally charged with several felonies, including unarmed robbery, home invasion, and assault resulting in great bodily harm (without actually causing the victim’s death).
According to Paul T. Walton, chief assistant at the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, if the suspects are found guilty, they could remain behind bars for up to 20 years.
In the meantime, Frankie Santana, who is one of the inhabitants of the Pontiac apartment building where the attack unfolded, has revealed in a interview with a local TV station that he was the perpetrators’ victim.
As he explained, the two robbers caused him an eye wound, spat on him and trampled him without remorse, but the good news is that he hasn’t sustained any broken bones, and will be making a full recovery.
