NEW CASTLE — A man who said he was beaten up at a West Side block party sought hospital treatment for his injuries.

New Castle police charged Shakeem Jamal Moore, 22, of 348 Halco Drive, in connection with the July 5 incident.

The victim, a 20-year-old Shenango Township man, told police Moore and two others approached him at a party on Bell Avenue about something he had posted on Facebook.
