WILTON MANORS, FL, May 17, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Reported by Channel 10's Tampa Bay News May 14, 2012: "Police say the victim of a violent beating caught on camera is a 24 year old and has lived in Tampa for less than a month. He's a United States Army soldier assigned to MacDill Air Force Base and lives not far from the base at Dale Mabry Hwy. and Interbay Blvd."
According to police reports on Sunday morning, at around 3 a.m., the soldier's car broke down a few miles from home along Westshore Blvd. The attack came when he was walking home and using Iowa St. to get from Westshore to Dale Mabry. At the intersection of Iowa and Renellie Dr., the man came into the view of a neighbor's motion-activated security camera. A group of three young men are seen walking ahead of the soldier. Police say one of the men in the group doubled back and asked the soldier to borrow a dollar. When the soldier reached for his wallet, the first punch flew. The first, tremendous sucker punch laid the victim onto the ground. The other two men joined in, punching and kicking the soldier. A fourth man comes sprinting into view from the left edge of the video. The new attacker -- a man the soldier said he had walked past earlier -- joined in the beating. Tampa Police officers say the men stole the soldier's wallet and cell phone, then took off south on Renellie Dr. When he eventually got to his feet, the victim had to knock on doors to find someone to help him call 911. The soldier was taken to Tampa General Hospital with cuts and bruises on his face and head. Police say he is expected to make a full recovery."
Police are hoping someone will come forward with information regarding this brutal beating and call Tampa Police to help them find the attackers. Reverend Randy White will provide a reward of $5,000 to the person who leads to arrest of these four men. Please call Tampa Police at 813-354-6600 if you have information.
About Reverend Randy White
Determined to make a difference, Reverend Randy White rid himself of denominational restraints and founded local place of worship, Without Walls International Church, originally under the name South Tampa Christian Center, in 1991. It began with a sidewalk Sunday school and a desire to feed the poor. What began in an 1100 square foot storefront eventually grew to a tent, then a dome, and then to what is now today a 4,000-seat auditorium in Tampa, Florida.
Reverend Randy White's legacy continues at Without Walls International Church through its feeding programs, its outreach programs, and annual community events "Back to School Bash", "Table in the Wilderness" and Christmas Extravaganza".
Today, Reverend White is involved in the organization he founded in memory of his late daughter, Kristen Renee Foundation, and their project, Fighting for Frederick.
