IMPERIAL BEACH (CNS) - Law enforcement authorities asked for the public's help Thursday in identifying a group of young men who pummeled an 18-year-old man into unconsciousness in Imperial Beach.
The victim and two friends were drinking beer with some young men they had just met at the Imperial Beach Pier between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. May 27 when a fight broke out, according to San Diego County Crime Stoppers.
"Initially, the interaction was friendly but when the victim and his friends decided to go home, the group of men became hostile," a Crime Stoppers bulletin said, noting the group yelled profanities and challenged the victim and his friends to a fight, then chased after them.
The group caught up with the victim while he was hiding in some bushes in the front yard of a home near Elder Avenue and Second Street. They punched and kicked the victim, then stole his cell phone and wallet, authorities said.
The victim was found unconscious six or seven hours later and taken to a local hospital, where he underwent more than one surgical procedure, according to authorities. The aggressors were all in their early 20s, but specific descriptions were unavailable.
Anyone with more information about the crime was asked to call the Imperial Beach sheriff's station at (619) 498-2400 or Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
Information leading to an arrest could be worth up to $1,000.
