Police arrested a Carthage man accused of beating a homeless man and issued warrants for three other suspects in the attack.
Investigators said Michael Hesson and three other men, who police said were active-duty military personnel, went to a homeless camp near West Mitchell Avenue and ordered a homeless man and his girlfriend to leave.
John Johnson told investigators the men cursed him and told him to get a job before attacking him with baseball bats and other objects.
Johnson suffered a facial fracture and cuts and bruises to his head, arms, torso and back.
These sick individuals need the book thrown at them.
