City man clings to life after struck by brick

June 13, 2012

WOONSOCKET (Courtesy WPRI) - A city man is fighting for his life after being struck in the head with a brick early Saturday morning.
According to police, Brian Hicks and three friends were walking near Walnut Hill when someone drove by in a gold truck and threw a brick out the window, hitting Hicks in the head.
"Whoever did this is an animal we want this guy caught," said Hicks' father Russell, according to WPRI.
Doctors say Hicks is battling a severe head injury. He's had multiple surgeries, but so far shown no sign of consciousness. Doctors say they aren't sure what the outcome will be.
Police have no suspects at this time, according to WPRI, but they are looking into reports that Hicks and his friends got into an argument earlier in the night with another group of young men at a Woonsocket gas station.
Hicks remains in critical condition.
