Two injured in brutal East Austin attack

Posted: Updated:

Another brutal fight has occurred in East Austin. The victims are asking for our help in tracking down the suspects.

It’s shocking video you'll only see on FOX 7. Two men were jumped on East 6th Street after leaving the bar. One is left with a skull fracture.

Its two minutes of their lives they say were gone in a flash.

"I have no idea how the whole thing ensued. I don’t know whether it's that I got hit so hard, but I just don't remember any of it," said a victim who wishes to remain anonymous.

In the surveillance video from early Wednesday morning you clearly see a suspect sitting on top of someone, punching them in the face over and over. The victim tries to stand up but again is knocked out. Seconds later you see another victim walk into the frame. He is quickly pushed to the ground and kicked several times. Then a second suspect is seen helping in the attack.

After seeing the video, that victim's mother is traumatized.

"I really think if that truck hadn't rolled up, that they would have kept the attack going until they killed both of them. I think their intent was to kill them because he was already unconscious and they were still stomping on his head," she said.

She says he was hospitalized for several days, now left with a fractured skull, a large contusion and bleeding of the brain. The emotional scars are just as bad.

"He's having severe anxiety and he can't sleep. This will probably change his life forever; I don't know if he'll ever get over this," she said.

After the suspects leave, surveillance video shows the victims are unable to get up and are very disoriented.

"I mean it was scary because it was pretty random. I make that trip, you know, seven nights a week."

They were told this type of situation is nothing new.

"They told me in the hospital that they see that all the time, people that have been jumped down on 6th Street. They said it's a normal occurrence. How can that be? How can this be normal?"

The victims don't have a description of the suspects other than what you see in the video; something that is causing pain for all of those involved.

"When I go to sleep, that's what I see. When I wake up in the morning, that's the first thing I see. I just don't know how we're ever going to get over this but I really thank god that he's alive and we still have him."

If you happened to witness the incident or recognize the suspects in the video, you're asked to call police.
