Charges: Man brutally beat Mpls. market owner on New Year's Eve


The owner of the Portland Market in south Minneapolis was put into a medically induced coma, needed five plates put in his face and could lose an eye after a burglar severely beat him with a hammer at his store on New Year’s Eve.

The victim, 53-year-old George Gerges and his wife, Saydee, have owned the market at 3751 Portland Av. S. for about eight years and never before had a problem until New Year’s Eve, she said in an interview Thursday. She faults in part a slow response from Minneapolis police, who did not arrive to the business until 38 minutes after the security alarm went off.
