Police Continue To Look for Suspects and Motive In Southside Beating

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An unprovoked fatal beating on the City’s Southside has Police looking for answers.

Saint Louis Police Captain Michael Sack tells KMOX an older Asian couple, walking in an alley in the 38-hundred block of Spring,  were attacked and beaten by two men and two women.

72-year old Hoang Ngyuen died from his injuries, his wife survived, but was critically injured and has since been released from the hospital.

Sack says the motive is unknown, but they do not believe it was a robbery or hate crime. The incident was captured on video and that gives police something to go on. But they still need the public’s help. If you have any information call CrimeStoppers anonymously  at 1-866-371-TIPS.
