Assaulted: Ray Widstrand, 26, suffered potentially fatal brain swelling after he was attacked by a gang of youths

Assaulted: Ray Widstrand, 26, suffered potentially fatal brain swelling after he was attacked by a gang of youths

A man is in a critical condition after he was brutally assaulted by a teenage gang, a stone's throw from the local police station.

Ray Widstrand was enjoying a late-night walk through his neighbourhood on St Paul’s East Side and was attacked as he walked through a group of 30 to 50 juveniles and young adults.

The 26-year-old was knocked down, stomped on and kicked as the juvenile attackers removed his trousers to rob him.

Mr Widstrand was found on the street, stripped and bleeding from his nose and mouth, and is now in a medically induced coma, battling potentially fatal brain swelling.

The television producer had moved to an apartment in the Minnesota city two months earlier and was working as a for a local community channel.

Speaking at a press conference, his father Peter said Ray had never ‘expressed any concerns’ about living on the East Side.

‘I can't imagine why someone would do this to another person. Hopefully they will at least answer to that,’ Peter Widstrand added.

The large group was fighting on a street located mere blocks from the local police station and turned the violence on Mr Widstrand when he tried to get past them, witnesses told police.

A local newspaper reported that the fight had started at a party nearby and a group of girls had taken it to the street after which the brawl escalated into a bust-up between local gangs.

‘An innocent man was walking down the street and brutally attacked by a group of youth,’ police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos, told http://www.twincities.com/crime/ci_23829526/st-paul-man-19-charged-east-side-beating" rel="nofollow - ‘He was out for a walk and decided to go through this group and was assaulted and knocked unconscious.’

According to the police report, Mr Widstrand was hit over the head with a ‘can in a sock’ which knocked him to the ground.

Family support: Ray Widstrands parents Linda and Peter spoke during a press conference alongside his sister Alice, expressing their shock and disbelief as to why Ray was attacked

Police found Widstrand lying on the ground, bleeding from his nose and mouth, his pants removed and shirt torn, according to a criminal complaint filed by the Ramsey County attorney's office.

Mr Widstrand is reportedly in a critical condition but stable condition and is expected to be brought out of a medically induced coma this week, his sister told PioneerPress.

Family and friends are holding a bedside vigil at Regions Hospital where Mr Widstrand is being treated for potentially fatal brain swelling.

'He's in the most difficult time right now, as far as swelling and cranial pressure. We're in that critical time,' his father said.

Isaac Maiden, 19, has been charged with first-degree assault, first-degree aggravated robbery and crime committed for the benefit of a gang.

He is being held with bail set to $150,000 and is scheduled to appear in court this month.

Maiden denies assault.

A further three male juveniles have been arrested in connection to the attack but no charges have been brought against them.

but how do you have no common sense at all?   you see melee in the street and you walk past saying "excuse me, pardon me"?  if youre not there to throw blows you need to double back.

Apparently common sense is uncommon.

This story reminded me of that mother who put her kid on top of the railing at the wild dogs exhibit at the zoo last year.  Didn't end well to say the least, just like this man.

I just don't get how ppl put themselves/others in dangerous circumstances on purpose...

When you see stuff like that, you simply walk the other way.

I guess he wasn't taught that in his lilly white childhood.

LOL How the hell does he think he can walk through a big fight. Like they're going to part like the red sea for him. It sucks for him. This guy could have seen it from blocks away and just walk somewhere else?!
Only if it was 20 or so people he should of known better.

How the hell do you walk into a 50 people gang fight?!!!! How?!

The cross the road when they see 1 black person & yet are oblivious to 50 people who are actually in the process of being anti social.

That's just crazy. Is he blind? Or special???

In all honesty. & not even trying to be a smart arse. I'd either go back to where I was. Or to a friend's. & if I wanted to get home THAT bad I'd call a cab.

I'd NEVER walk through a 2 person fight. Let alone 50 people. I'm not stooopid & I'd rather be a punani about the situation. I'm not trying to get hit or stabbed. No sirreee!!!

I feel sorry for him.  However, a person would have to be stupid or too curious to walk thru a gang fight.  Any normal person would have went somewhere else regardless.  Why risk your life to go anywhere (including your home)?

Let's be real though. You guys don't have friends that have been jumped? They were at the wrong place at the wrong time, or they got tangled up in something they had no business in. It happens, everyday, all the time. If that guy moved into a neighborhood with a high crime rate, it was a possibility. It sucks, but he is still alive (in a coma, but alive). He will survive. Hopefully he will move.

You see 30+ niccas banging out an you try to walk right through it? Y? What kind of neighborhood does he live in where he just taking a walk at night?
He's white.. im suprised he didn't call the police ! n who are these witnesses? A who bunch of niccas banging out and the police don't arrive till after shyt go down or till a white man injured..

Um, no they like to investigate stuff and throw on their capes while they are at it.
You can hear a loud ass bang in the office and leave it up to white folks to get up and go directly where they heard the noiseSleepy

I'm not buying it. People don't want to walk through a group of 20 upstanding black citizens, they're definitely not going to just cruise through a fight of 30+ people at night, in the hood. Gtfohwtbs!

I don't know why this made me laugh so hard. But it's true, though. He was involved all right and I can't wait for it to come out that he was.
