A relative of one of the boys who was with Demarco Gibbs when he was beaten is calling on the mothers of the other children to take them to the police.

Demarco, ten, was detained in the Intensive Care Unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on June 14 after being struck in  the head with pieces of wood.
