LEWISTON, Maine —
Members of the immigrant community and family members of a man who died after being attacked in Lewiston’s Kennedy Park last week are calling for peace.
They stood together outside Lewiston City Hall Sunday morning to send a message that violence has no place in Lewiston.
Donald Giusti, 38, of Lewiston, died Friday of injuries suffered during a large fight Tuesday night in Kennedy Park.
“We’re heartbroken. We’re heartbroken but broken as a community. We just all have to come together as one to know that we can walk to the park at night and nothing’s going to happen,” Giusti’s uncle, Jim Thompson, said.
“Kennedy Park should be a place where people all of races and religions feel comfortable enjoying the beauty of our city. It’s time for all residents of Lewiston to come together and put and end to the violence,” Fatuma Hussein, of Immigrant Resource Center of Maine, said.
Police have not identified any suspects in Giusti’s death. They have only said that members of multiple ethnic groups were involved.
Lewiston Mayor Shane Bouchard urged residents to have patience and let police conduct the investigation.
