A 17-year-old suspect wanted in connection with a Bluffton beating that temporarily left a man in a coma remained at large Wednesday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
Anthony Grant is accused of participating in what was apparently the gang-related beating of Stefon Harris, 22, of Bluffton, a Sheriff's Office news release said.
Sgt. Robin McIntosh said investigators determined the attack was a "disciplinary action" after witnesses and suspects said Harris was "paying a debt for being stupid" and that the suspects were "getting him right."
McIntosh said it is not clear who, if anyone, ordered the attack.
Two brothers, 20-year-old Bryce Mincey and 21-year-old Christopher Mincey, were arrested last week on charges of second-degree assault and battery by a mob, a Sheriff's Office news release said. They each posted bonds of $10,000 July 24, according to the Beaufort County Detention Center log.
Deputies do not know where Grant is but said he has been known to frequent Jade Stone Court in Bluffton, the Hardeeville area and Oyster Shell Lane on Hilton Head Island. Sgt. Robin McIntosh said.
