Five Men Carried Out Organized Assaults On Homeless People. Including A Suspected Murder.

Men Assaulted The Homeless

Assault, Attempted Murder, and Battery Are Just Some Of The charges Five South Carolina Men Face

Multiple South Carolina men suspected of murder are now believed to have filmed themselves brutally attacking the homeless. Three men were charged in connection with the early July shooting of 31-year-old Joshua Matthew Garrett. Now two more are implicated in a range of crimes as well as the original three suspects.

A group of men attacked homeless encampments in the San Souci area of Greenville County, Georgia, between October 2021 and June 2022, beating the victims unconscious and shouting obscenities. Some victims were beaten unconscious as the other assailants cheered them on while possessing firearms.

The already-suspected trio of Ramey, Joshua Norris, and Seth Norris are not fully charged in connection with the filmed attacks on the homeless. Joshua Norris has been charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy, and Seth Norris has been charged with attempted murder.

The charges on each man currently are:

  • Seth Tyler Norris: Attempted murder, second-degree assault & battery by a mob, two counts of criminal conspiracy
  • Logan Alexander Holmes: Attempted murder
  • David Allen Norris: Attempted murder, criminal conspiracy
  • Joshua Shawn Norris: Second-degree assault & battery by a mob, two counts of criminal conspiracy
  • Tristan Ramey: Is implicated via video evidence of assault but police can not currently locate the victim.

Each of the victims’ faces is blurred in the hard-to-watch videos. They never fight back.

Police are still seeking additional victims that may be out there. There is at least one in the video who is currently unaccounted for and there may be more not appearing in the evidence the officers have obtained so far.
