CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – Chattanooga police are investigating a brutal assault from over the weekend.
It happened Saturday, just before 6:30 p.m. on Masters Road.
Police Spokesman Nathan Hartwig says the 59-year-old victim was hit with a blunt object, after four to five suspects walked up to him and demanded money.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for serious head trauma.
Hartwig says the suspects are believed to be males, ranging in age from 15 to 18 years old, with shaggy hair and average builds.
The victim's family asks that his name and current medical condition not be released.
If you have any information, you're asked to call Chattanooga police at 698-2525.
The vigil and balloon release will take place from 6 pm to 8 pm at the crash site on Talley Road.
Since the Woodmore crash, several changes have been made to increase safety and keep bus drivers accountable.
Judy Hughes, 38, was reported missing in 1989 from her north Georgia home. Later that year, parts of her body were discovered in the Tennessee River.
