Raymond Widstrand Fights For Life; After Being Beaten By Several Black People, in Minneapolis


August 18, 2013 Minneapolis Minnesota – (WCCO) Twenty-six-year-old Raymond Widstrand was walking on Payne Avenue Sunday evening when he came across a large group of people, who were watching a fight.

Police say it happened Aug. 4, 2013, at about 11:30 p.m. When police arrived, Widstrand was on the ground with his legs and arms spread out. Blood was coming from his nose and mouth.

His pants were off and his shirt torn.

Issac O’Neal Maiden, 19, is charged in Ramsey County with assault for committing a crime for the benefit of a gang.

The county attorney called it a senseless attack — one that left an apartment sitting empty and a family sitting in a police station.

The Widstrands said doctors haven’t given much hope of a full recovery. But the family has hope. They say he has a lot of swelling in his brain and that over the next week, they should know much more.

St. Paul Police say they are really hoping someone will come forward with some video of the fight to help them with the investigation. If you have a tip you can call police at 651-266-5650
