BAYONNE - Police say they've made a sixth arrest in a brutal beating of a man in Bayonne, just as the comatose victim gives his family and friends a new reason for hope.

The victim, Dawid Strucinski, opened his eyes and responded to loved ones who were at his hospital bedside for the first time on Monday. Authorities say another juvenile was arrested for the attack, but that three more suspects are being sought, including one adult.

Police say the vicious attack was fueled by underage drinking at a house party that spilled into the street. 5th arrest made in brutal Bayonne beating13 person beating leaves man in coma
