Charleston Police Use Surveillance Video To Try to Solve Beating Case

Charleston police are still combing over surveillance video, trying to identify members of a crowd who stood and watched a man get beaten with bricks Monday evening. Police say 21-year old Brandon Coltey was beaten along Laidley Street at the entrance to Transit Mall, and surveillance video shows two or three people carrying out the assault, but a larger crowd stood and watched. Coltey was robbed after the beating too. Anyone with information is asked to call Charleston police. Coltey is in the hospital in critical condition.
