Crime Stoppers: Springfield Attack Suspects
After two victims were severely beaten and hospitalized with critical injuries,
local police officers are looking for your help in solving this crime.
The attack took place inside an abandoned residence at 923 N. 9th St., which is where police found two victims inside who were severely beaten with beer bottles.
Crime Stoppers Coordinator Matt Goulet said there are very limited descriptions of the suspects, and is hoping the community can help.
"The only suspect information at this time is three young black males who appear to be in their teens," Goulet said. "A witness did report a break-in to the rear of that same residence just before police arrived on scene. The police were actually flagged down by another person who knew the victims."
The attack happened on December 21 at around 12 p.m.
If you know anyone who may have been involved, please call Crime Stoppers at (217)788-8427. You could get a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any information that leads to an arrest.
