Grand Jury Indicts Man for Attacking a Disabled Man in Wheelchair

A grand jury has indicted one of the men accused of attacking a disabled Riverhead man in a motorized scooter back in June.

Monwell Wright, 20, was arraigned in court Tuesday and held on $100,000 bail.

Victim Gene Lyons says he was heading home on Maple Avenue after attending church when four men attacked him from behind. He told News 12 that they hit him with objects and stole his bag.

Lyons says he didn’t hear his attackers due to his earbuds.

The suspects got away with $85 cash and $160 worth of money orders.

Court records show that at the time of the attack on Lyons, Wright had just finished serving six months for another robbery. Lyons hopes the $5,000 reward offered for the remaining suspects will incite people to turn them in.

“Please step up, because I'd like to have this resolved,” said Lyons. “I don't need to be scared every time I go around the corner and wonder what's going to happen.”
