MOBILE, Alabama -- Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens
so badly that he's in critical condition.
According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." Parker says 20 people, all African American
, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using "brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on."
As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said "Now thats justice for Trayvon."
