One Suspect (Out of Eight) Indentified in Columbia, S.C., “Jogger Assault”

Carter Strange, before the attack.


Carter Strange, after the attack, and after surgery.


Nineteen-year-old Tyheem Henrey is the only suspect whose name has been released.


[Previously: “Columbia, SC: In Non-Bias Attack, Eight Raceless Assailants Jump 18-Year-Old from Behind, Beat Him Almost to Death.”]

Here is the latest on “the jogger assault”—the near fatal, eight-on-one attack that left 18-year-old Carter Strange in critical condition—from South Carolina's leading newspaper.

One of the suspects is 19 and is identified with a booking photo. The story ends with safety tips for joggers.

The commenting feature has been disabled "because of the high level of abusive comments." [N.S. The editors have since convened, and the staff has since gone through and censored the comments that were too frank or crude for their tastes, and restored commenting…for the time being. However, as has occurred elsewhere regarding similar stories, those comments could be “disappeared” at any time.]

I can already picture the excuses that will be made:

“What was that boy doing there at that time of night? I bet he was looking for drugs. There's more to this story.”

As of Friday morning, according to Google, there has been no coverage outside of South Carolina.

8 Suspects in Custody for 5 Points Beating of 18-Year-Old Carter Strange

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia police say they are questioning eight suspects in connection with the severe beating of an 18-year-old man in Five Points.

Columbia Police Spokesperson Jennifer Timmons says the group turned themselves over to police Thursday night. She says seven of them are juveniles.

Jail records show one of the suspects, 19-year-old Tyheem Henrey, has been charged with assault, assault & battery by Mob, 2nd degree (Serious bodily injury results).
Timmons says some of the suspects saw themselves in media coverage and decided to turn themselves in, and others were convinced to go to police by their parents….

Correction: I mistakenly said that the news story that David in TN had referred to restored reader’s comments. My statement was false, and was based on my confusing a WLTX TV story with the story David had cited and linked to, which in fact came from The State newspaper, which has not restored readers’ comments. I hereby apologize to David and to our readers.

More blacks attacking lone whites in Denver.

Move along people, nothing to see here.

"While in every instance the victims were white men and the attacker or attackers black men, police do not believe the crimes to be racially motivated.

In only one instance did an attacker utter a racial epithet, Jackson said."

Corrupt Liberal Media calls earlier brutal racist attacks against whites in Denver a "rite of passage"!


On second thought.


Of the craven coverage by the Corrupt Liberal Media of violent black on white racist crime.
