The disturbing video was shared thousands of times on social media. Three men brutally beat in Greektown as Detroit’s Police Chief vows to catch all the men responsible.
It’s been nearly three weeks since the Greektown brawl shocked our community. Seven of the eight men believed to be responsible have been arrested, putting all hands on deck now to find 24-year-old Tyrone Larkins.
“A couple guys went out for a birthday party, they’re celebrating,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said. “While in passing they get in an argument, exchange some words with a group of around eight guys who were also at the casino.”
The beating was caught on video and later posted to Facebook.
“A heinous brutal beating, a beat down is what it was to the point where the victim is unconscious lying there and he’s still getting stomped on,” Garcia said.
Detroit Police identified all eight men believed to be responsible, locking up all but one.
Garcia says Larkins is in the video wearing a white t-shirt, jean shorts and a tan hat.
“The guy is out, he could have been dead, he got stomped, he got brutally beat,” Garcia said.
Larkins is charged with robbery, assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and felonious assault.
“He has a criminal history of drugs, he’s a drug dealer,” Garcia said.
Tyrone Larkins is 5’7” 150 pounds and believed to be armed and dangerous.
“He’s from Inkster, he’s an Inkster guy, he comes to the city of Detroit, commits these crimes and takes off and flees again,” Garcia said.
