Three people are facing charges after a man accidentally photobombed them and he was beaten into unconsciousness.
The charges stem from a May 11 incident in LoDo when the bars let out and the defendants were taking photographs of themselves near 14th and Market streets. The unidentified 30-year-old victim accidentally walked into one of the shots, police said, and one of the suspects, Bryanna Warren, 25 began arguing with him and hitting him.
According to an arrest affidavit, the victim pushed Warren away and began walking away but was followed by Warren and Lindsye Newton, 25, as the argument escalated. Police said the victim pushed them both away and was then knocked unconscious by the third suspect, Terrell Moore, 27.
A police sergeant witnessed the blow to the victim's head, and said he tried to protect the victim on the ground from the growing crowd. At one point, the officer's attention was diverted and when he turned back, he said saw Newton hitting the unconscious man in the face with her purse.
Both Newton and Warren were charged with third-degree assault on an at-risk adult "for allegedly continuing to assault the victim while he was lying unconscious on the ground," according to a news release.
Police initially charged the trio with public fighting but a medical report said the victim sustained permanent blindness in his right eye, facial fractures and intra-cranial hemorrhaging. That's when the charges were upgraded.
These people are nothing but animals.

Definitely worth repeating.
Race of the victim hasn’t been released...Hmmm, I wonder why?
Crazy-assed cracka don’t get a mention.
The poor guy got Trayvonned. Should have been carrying.
THIRD Degree assault??? THIRD??? REALLY?? Because they were BLACK MAYBE????
OOPS....Is THIRD Degree HARSHER that First or Second Degree??
It should’ve been a DGU.
Time to bombard the Denver DA, with our disgust. I am going to send an email. This is so wrong in every way. 3rd Degree assault? God.. White liberal pussies, to afraid to call it what it is. Hate Crime.
I don’t watch the MSM news and don’t click on every link related to b-on-w assaults, but...
SYG or not, is there any better example of why George Zimmerman HAD to open fire before he was beat unconscious (or worse)?
On the assault charges: With the injuries described, the continued beating described as against ‘at-risk’ and 3-on-1 it should have been ‘attempted murder’ or similar.
What is it w/ these slightly ‘evolved’ animals, that keep attacking after the victim is out cold/dead?
It took a ‘ruined photo’ (nobody knows how to use Photoshop?) to escalate the physical harm?
Charges are WAY too lenient.
I know my friend Karle Seydel would have been the first to descry this. His love of LoDo was legendary. Unfortunately, thuggery has grown and civility has diminished
Took me a few minutes to remember what “photobomb” was, but that’s hardly a reason for this to happen. ‘Course, we’re talking about subhuman, feral, ghetto-rat filth. Figures.
Court dates for the three have been scheduled for Aug 22 and 23.
It appears these bipeds were actually going to get a slap on the wrists for this ambush until apparently someone thought better of it. What kind of a moron cop, or his/her superiors, would consider a joke charge of “public fighting” an appropriate charge for a beat-down like this-imagine what would have happened if there had been no cop there.
Could this be one of the reasons the people in northern CO are trying to secede?
