Reports of a brutal attack in St. Roch have neighbors on edge

Local artist and art teacher Christopher Brumfield says he was attacked Saturday night and he recounted the incident on his Facebook page. Brumfield said in his post quote "a group of 12 or so high school age kids, girls and boys, attacked me with clubs and tried to kill me..." The post indicates he was able to escape by crawling to N. Claiborne avenue where a driver stopped to help him. A spokesperson for the police department says they did send officers to respond to the scene but were not able to speak with Brumfield. He was treated at the hospital for his injuries, that include broken ribs, scrapes and bruises. Neighbors in that area say they are hearing reports of attacks like this more often. "This is at least the second time this week that someone was mugged and beaten up on this three block strip," said Thor Carlson who lives in the area. Neighbors also told us they are concerned because the street lights have been out in that area for a few months and there are several dark spots that could be dangerous. At this point there are no descriptions available of Brumfield's attackers. If you have any information on this incident call Crimestoppers at 822-1111
