Beating victim's sister believes race played role in attack
The sister of the 39-year-old man beaten in Peekskill says she believes her brother was attacked because he is Ecuadorian.
Marcisca Serrano, speaking through an interpreter, says that her brother, 39-year-old Julio Serrano, is a friendly individual who has no enemies. The attack happened Saturday morning and was partially captured on surveillance cameras.
Four men, Ronnie Juett, Jarron Sligh, Keith Walker and Jamar Walker, have been charged with gang assault.
Serrano says she is grateful to the Peekskill Police Department for the quick arrests in the case.
Julio Serrano remains in a coma at Westchester Medical Center.
