A Florida man was severely injured when black teens teens beat him with a hammer a month after the Trayvon Martin shooting.
The media has been mostly silent on this brutal crime.
October Freedom’s Blog reported:
A fifty year old man, race undisclosed, is on life support after a near fatal beating. Police have arrested two black teens. The attack occurred near the community where the Trayvon Martin self-defense shooting took place.
The victim is from Winter Springs, which is 88% white. The victim was attacked in nearby Midway, which is 94% black. Both communities are within about a six-mile radius of Sanford.
Hat Tip Mara
The victim’s father was searching for answers after the attack.
The Daily News reported:
A Jacksonville business owner is searching for answers following a vicious attack on his son almost two weeks ago in Seminole County,Fla.
Frank Slavin, the owner of Slavin Gallery in Jacksonville, told The Daily News Friday that his son Mark Slavin, 50, has been in critical condition and on life support at Orlando Regional Medical Center since the attack on March 26.
“It doesn’t look good for him, it doesn’t look good at all,” he said.
Slavin said his son, a graduate of Lejeune High School, has massive injuries to his skull after receiving 13 blows to the head with a hammer. He said Mark, who is single and a salesman for a furniture company in Orlando,Fla., was so badly battered that he was unidentifiable.
According to an arrest report from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, a man called 911 on March 26 to report hearing a man screaming for help. The caller said he saw two men pulling a third man from a vehicle and beating him with a hammer. The two dragged the man into nearby woods and continued to attack him, according to the report. The two fled the scene in the man’s vehicle before deputies arrived.
Julius Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Israel, 19, both of Sanford, Fla., were charged on March 30 by the sheriff’s office with attempted homicide, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary in connection to the attack.
A tip received through the area’s Crime Line led investigators to Bender andIsrael, according to the release. Bender was identified through witness identification, and Israel was linked to the vehicle through forensic evidence.
It is not known how Mark Slavin is doing today after the brutal beating last year.
It is also not clear if this beating had anything to do with Trayvon’s death.
