Father seeks justice after Brookside attack

Perry Bailey, the victims' father, is frustrated. March 16, 2015 (WISH-TV)

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Perry Bailey carried a look of frustration as he stood outside his home. Less than 48 hours ago, Bailey’s 14-year-old daughter and his 5-year-old son were viciously attacked by a teenage girl.

A spectator caught the brutal beating on camera at Brookside Park and posted the attack online.

Police used the images as part of the investigation.

Before police could make an arrest, the teenage suspect got in a fight downtown on Saturday night.

Police arrested her and charged her with disorderly conduct for the Saturday night fight.

Prosecutors are trying to determine what to charge the girl with in the Brookside attack.

According to Bailey, his daughter has been a victim of bullying. Bailey has reported the issues to school administrators in the past.

Last year, the victim and suspect both attended George Washington Community High School. According to an IPS spokesperson, the suspect hasn’t been enrolled in IPS for about a year.

Police have not determined if others that were at the Brookside Park attack should face charges in this case.

Until charges are formally filed, Bailey will continue to seek justice.

“I don’t feel like it is over,” said Bailey. “We won’t have closure until we have justice.”
