Posted by Colin Evander

A 29 year old man was playing Pokemon Go near the Peace Center in Greenville, SC when he passed a group of five young black males and females. One of the black males attacked him at random. Police are calling the attack “attempted murder,” and say the man may have brain damage.

The attack took place on Wednesday, and the victim was still in the hospital Friday night.

The local media is censoring the race of the victim, but residents of Greenville are posting on the internet that he is white.
