Posted: Updated:

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are reviewing surveillance video along River Street.

A family said they had just finished dinner and were walking along the river when they said they were suddenly attacked by a group of people on Saturday night.

The family was visiting for the Mother's Day weekend and have now returned to their home in metro Atlanta, where they are recovering from their injuries.

"I was grabbed by the back of my head at a full run and he smashed my head into the car and then I hit the ground," said Jim Thomas, the alleged victim. "This was a violent, malicious attack on a family with eight people."
