Mom Hopes Video Leads to Arrests in Beating of Sons in N. Columbus
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- A mother hopes the public airing of a brutal attack on her sons will lead to the arrests of those responsible nearly a year after the assault occurred.
Kimberly Brigham's sons (ages 23 and 15) were beaten by an angry mob at a McDonald's on Cleveland Ave. in North Columbus in January, 2013.
Brigham believes her sons were assaulted because they returned to their old neighborhood after moving to the city's East Side.
"They felt that, when they left that side of town, they don't have a right to come there. I think that's crazy," Brigham said. "I feel like I should be able to go where I want to go, and they should be able to go wherever they want to go."
After the attack, the victims attempted keep news of the brawl from their mother, but were ultimately unable to hide their injuries.
"My son turned to the side, and his nose is flat to his face," she said. "I'm like, 'You are not okay.' I took them to the hospital."
One of Brigham's sons sustained a broken nose during the attack; both victims suffered cuts and bruises.
Investigators eventually gave security footage of the assault to Brigham, who has grown increasingly impatient with the lack of arrests made in connection with the attack on her sons.
The mother hopes the video will lead to public assistance that could provide officers with the break they need to identify those responsible for the incident.
