TRUMANN, AR - Two Trumann men face charges of attempted murder for their alleged roles in the severe beating of another Trumann man.

Chad Mott and Raoul Simpson, Jr., both 24, were arrested Tuesday evening after allegedly attacking and beating a man identified as David Canerdy to the point of unconsiousness.  Witness say the suspects continued to kick and stomp the victim in the head, even after he was unconscious.  Canerdy was rushed to St. Bernard's Medical Center in Jonesboro, before being transferred to a Little Rock hospital.  Canerdy has been unable to make a statement to police, due to his condition.

A source tells K8 News all three men had been drinking when the incident occured around 7:45 p.m. on Woodland Circle in Trumann.

Bond for Mott and Simpson has been set at $250,000 each, and the two are to appear in court again on August 30.
