TCHULA, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Tchula Police are on the hunt for two teenagers wanted for aggravated assault on a wheelchair bound, double amputee.  

Police said they have made one arrest in the case and 20-year-old Aavon Coffer is behind bars charged with aggravated assault.

Now Tchula Police are using social media in hopes of catching the other two.

“I think they are a bunch of cowards,” said Police Chief Kenneth Hampton. That's how Hampton describes to 19-year-old Kajarius Anderson and 18-year-old Kamechie Coffer.

He said it's upsetting they haven't been caught yet.

The chief claims he has evidence the two attacked double amputee Clarence Blue over the summer, but the coroner's report said that the Blue died of natural causes.  

Clarence Blue’s mother, Essie, is upset.

“I am not talking about what nobody told me, I am talking about what Ms. Blue went to the hospital and saw with her own eye, " Essie Blue said. "All this up in here where they beat him.” 

Hampton believes the two teenagers left Tchula to evade police.

“You can run but you can't hide," Hampton said. "I am going to find you.”

Hampton and his team have now begun a manhunt on the streets and nearby counties and communities to find Anderson and Coffer. 

Their pictures are now also all over social media.  

“Everybody has Facebook and everybody socializing," Hampton explained. "Believe it or not, I have gotten overwhelming support from people all over the country by sharing the post that I posted. I think yesterday morning, the post had just over a half a million viewers.”

Essie Blue is praying the chief's plan works, because what happened to her "baby boy" is just not right.

“What did he do bad to them for them to beat him like that?’ said Blue.

If you have any information about where these suspects might be, please contact the Tchula Police Department.
