Local police are on the lookout for four people charged with Mob Action following an alleged December 11th incident in Moro. Investigators say they are still unsure of the motive behind the alleged attack, but the victim has suffered injuries that will require surgery to fix.
The victim says he was given a ride from Wood River to Moro, where he thought he was going to meet a girl. When he got there, the attack allegedly began and Captain Mike Dixon of the Madison County Sheriff's Department tells The Big Z the victim says one of the suspects stuck his fingers in his eye socket.
