Gang members arrested for beating

July 14, 2005

Albany- Six members of an Albany gang are charged with attacking a man on a bicycle. Michael Williams and Fred Campbell are two of the West Side Rattlers members charged Thursday with aggravated assault and armed robbery.

Bernard White, Brandon Ball and two juveniles are also charged with beating a man with a stick and metal mailbox post as he rode through Avalon Park in southwest Albany Tuesday. Police say they also stole his money and his bike.

"We want them to understand that when they come out and commit a crime, they will face prosecution for it," said Lt. Tracy Barnes with the Albany Police Department.

White and Ball were still being interviewed Thursday evening and were not in the jail yet.
