“They used pepper spray to blind one of his eyes before he ran across the street to seek help from one of the gentlemen walking down the street. The man you see walking away was just a Samaritan. The two suspects here used that same spray to hit him in the head and knocked him out, he awoke at the hospital hours later. They continue to kick him while he was passed out on the ground. Cut lips, bruised face, black and blue all over, blood covered and you could not even recognize him. Please share and bring justice to this man.”
