ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – St. Louis police are searching for the young men responsible for beating up a lawyer in downtown St. Louis.

Police say the incident happened Monday night just before 5 o’clock, on N. 10th Street, between Locust and Olive.  The 32 year-old victim was walking home from work, when 7 to 8 black males approached him.  They all appeared to be teenagers, wearing khaki pants and black shirts.

The teens asked him for money, and when the victim said he didn’t have any, they punched him, knocking him unconscious. Police say they stole his cell phone and money.

A friend of the victim says he suffered a broken nose, two broken eye sockets, and several missing teeth.
