Holyoke man allegedly beaten by 3 brothers for 'sexting' explicit photo to their mother
HOLYOKE (AP) - Police say three Holyoke brothers are facing charges for using a baseball bat to beat a man they say texted an explicit photo of himself to their mother.
Police say 41-year-old Jacob Rodriguez; 44-year-old Israel Estrada; and 43-year-old Felix Estrada, were charged Wednesday with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Rodriguez is also facing drug charges.
Officers received a report of the beating at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday and arrested the men about 4:30 p.m.
Lt. Isaias Cruz tells The Republican of Springfield that the 32-year-old victim suffered a broken hand and other injuries.
The brothers were being held at the police station and were unavailable for comment. It's not clear if they have a lawyer.
They are scheduled to be arraigned today.
