Arrests Lead To Charges In Brookside Attack
Kansas City, Mo. – Convenience store surveillance video led to an arrest, and now charges have been filed against two Kansas City men in a particularly brutal beating in Brookside.
The Jackson County Prosecutor lays charges that 23-year-old Andre Valentine and 20-year-old Durrell White beat, robbed, then further savaged a man and woman in a parking lot Friday near 62nd Terrace west of Main.
The 21-year old-woman victim was kicked in the head when she fell to pavement, suffering multiple skull and spinal fractures, ear damage and lacerations.
Police said White and Valentine robbed the couple at gunpoint, tried to take their car, went into a rage when they couldn't drive the standard transmission and continued to beat the woman. Police found one of the suspects when he allegedly used a credit card from a victim. The transaction was caught on store video.
