Police investigating the beating of two men inside a crowded Levi’s Stadium restroom that left one of the victims in serious condition are asking for more witnesses to come forward.
The alleged Oct. 5 attack by Amador Rebollero, 27, and his brother, 34-year-old Dario Rebollero, both from the town of Traver in Tulare County, injured one man and put his cousin in the hospital. Prosecutors said Thursday the victim in more serious condition is “partially paralyzed” 11 days after the attack.
Authorities have not identified the victims.
“The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is being asked to come forward and speak with investigators,” Santa Clara Police Lt. Kurt Clarke said in a release.
Prosecutors say the attack happened when the possibly-paralyzed victim was in line in the men’s room behind Amador Rebollero and “nudged” him on the shoulder to point out an available urinal.
A video posted on YouTube, which was confirmed by police as showing the fight in question, shows a stocky man with a goatee wearing a No. 21 Frank Gore shirt punching a thinner man in a Colin Kaepernick No. 7 shirt. The thinner man falls flat on the floor. The video camera stays with this man for a while, showing him motionless.
The witness told police he started filming "because he could sense an attack," and then Amador Rebellero threw punches at the man without warning.
After the assault, both defendants, who prosecutors say have gang tattoos, fled from the bathroom, but were soon tracked down and arrested by officers.
The Rebollero brothers were arraigned last week on felony assault charges.
