Facts in Peru beating case are still being investigated

Posted by wlpo on August 9, 2015

If you’ve been following the story of a man attacked on the north end of Peru, the victim’s story may not be entirely true.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the 43-year-old man who says he was attacked last Monday by several men was released from St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria on Friday. Once he was out of the hospital, officers took the chance to interview him about what allegedly happened at an apartment on May Road.

Bernabei says no arrests have been made and they are trying to verify some possible inconsistencies in the victim’s story.
