Man Beaten With Brass Knuckles

A man beaten with brass knuckles Saturday on Charleston's West Side has been taken to a Morgantown hospital. Police say the victim, Marvin Gillespie, was a random victim and suffered serious injuries around his right eye. The accused attacker, 22-year old Joshua Blanchett, was a fugitive from justice. Because of erratic behavior, Blanchett had to be arraigned by video because police didn't think it was safe to take him before a judge. Blanchett's next court date is this Thursday.
