The attack happened at a Serra Mesa Taco Bell restaurant on Jan. 30
San Diego police are searching for two men accused of beating up another man at a Taco Bell fast food restaurant in Serra Mesa.
Police say the violent attack happened on Jan. 30 around noon at the Taco Bell located at 9800 Aero Drive.
The victim was inside when he heard two other male patrons allegedly making loud, vulgar remarks.
Police say the victim asked the two unknown men to curtail their comments because there were children present in the restaurant. Thats when one of the suspects challenged the victim and they walked out front.
Once outside, investigators say a young woman who was with the suspects said something that distracted the victim, causing him to turn his head toward her.
At that point, the victim was allegedly attacked by one of the suspects and knocked to the ground. Once on the ground, the victim was repeatedly punched and kicked in the head and face by the two men.
Police say the victim sustained several wounds, cuts and abrasions to the face, hands, arms and groin in the brutal beating.
Eventually, the suspects stopped attacking and drove away from the Taco Bell in a silver sedan possibly a Honda -- along with their female companion.
Investigators describe the suspects as two white men in their mid-20s. They were caught on surveillance video inside the restaurant minutes before the attack (see video below).
The primary aggressor is 6-foot-1 with a medium build, short red hair and a red beard. He wore a black T-shirt with a large white logo, baggy black basketball shorts and a baseball cap. He also had a white bandage or wrap on his right hand and forearm.
Investigators say the second suspect is 5-foot-9 with a medium build and neck-length brown hair. He wore a red T-shirt, dark pants and a baseball cap during the beating. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this assault should contact SDPD Det. Dean Way or Det. Joe Volker at (858) 495-7900 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
A good reason to carry. Asking someone to refrain from profanity is not instigating a fight.
WOW! They NEVER include the race of the perps! I'm guessing this does not presage a general change in that policy.
Certainly not afraid to mention the perps race in this report.
People who use loud vulgarities in public around children might also have other antisocial habits.
I’m not a tough guy, and I defend him SAYING something to the punks, but at least smart enough not to go outside outnumbered....just sayin..
You don't like horse meat, huh? :-)
Perhaps they were white hispanics.
yeah no kidding.
Asking someone to refrain from profanity is not instigating a fight.
It is when the person only knows 4 letter word’s. Public school system drop outs I suspect.
What's the point of that if you're easily distracted from the direct threat?
FTA: a young woman who was with the suspects said something that distracted the victim, causing him to turn his head toward her.
‘No quiero Taco Bell.’
Agreed, but they still need to be civilized. And I'm using "civilized" as a verb not an "adjective", synonomous with pacified.
What!!!!??? Tut tut....I happen to like the Bell. Fine dining.
Well, that was right in there. I hope they catch them...there's a chance of it now I suppose.
QUIERO un hombre maricon...
