SEATTLE - Two soldiers who just returned from a year in Iraq were badly beaten in an attack outside Pioneer Square. But believe it or not, someone caught the beating on videotape. Now, police are asking for your help identifying the suspects.
The brutality of it all was captured on tape outside of Larry’s Nightclub on First and Yesler on July 31.
Police say the victims were with two women who’d been groped by the suspects. One of the women threw a hot dog at the suspects and walked away
They didn’t get very far. The three suspects ran after them and began attacking the two men – two soldiers who’d come home from the war.
The graphic videotape shows both victims getting beaten over and over again, and then after one of the victims loses consciousness, a suspect starts stomping on his head.
Now police want your help in catching these guys.
“We consider them very dangerous,” said Seattle Police Officer Sean Whitcomb.
After not getting any leads, Seattle police have just released this tape to the media even though it happened over three weeks ago.
If you know who these suspects are, or have any information in the case, you’re asked to call Seattle Police.
Both victims suffered broken jaws, while one suffered a broken arm and both had other broken bones and several bruises. Here’s some closer photos of the three suspects, along with one who is just a witness but police want to find and talk to:
