VSO Detectives Seek Father, Son Suspects After Man Was Severely Beaten


Volusia sheriff’s detectives need the public’s help to locate two suspects -- a father and his son -- wanted for severely beating a Lake Mary man at a wedding reception in Lake Helen.

Deputies were called to the scene in which three men engaged in a fight in the parking lot. The victim was struck in the head and face multiple times and kicked even after becoming unresponsive. The two suspects fled the scene before deputies arrived.
