Charges upgraded against man who was caught on camera beating a Vietnam veteran

Last month a disabled Vietnam veteran, who was also a police officer, was viciously attacked by a 21-year-old man in front of his home in Palos Hills, Illinois.

Richard Jones, 66, had just stepped out of his car near his home when he asked a neighbor to slow down in the parking lot. The request led to a verbal confrontation with the driver Michael Seno.

The verbal confrontation led to Jones being punched, kicked and beaten on the ground. According to Patch, he suffered two broken nasal bone, two black eyes, a concussion and scraped shins.

Due to the severity of Jones’ injuries the Palos Hills Sheriff office has decided to upgrade Seno’s charge from misdemeanor battery to aggravated battery, a class 3 felony.

After Seno’s arraignment hearing he was immediately taken into custody and bond was set at $50,000.  His next scheduled court date is set for December 28th.
