Tallahassee, FL – Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) has released a video that showed a security guard being brutally beaten by three men, in an attempt to identify the attackers (video below).
The incident occurred on April 1, during an unauthorized pool party at the Aqua Palms Apartments, the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) said in a Facebook post.
The unnamed security officer asked the swimwear-clad group to disperse and to leave the area, when one of the partygoers charged forward, and punched the victim, who immediately fell backwards onto the ground.
The attacker lost no momentum, and delivered several additional blows as a second man jumped through the air, landing on the fallen officer.
He began punching and kicking him, while a third man joined in on the savage assault.
While the three men relentlessly pummeled the defenseless man, the partygoers simply looked on.
“Oh s**t! Oh s**t!” a woman was heard screaming in the video. “Oh f**k.”
No one appeared to come to the victim’s aid during the brutal assault, which suddenly ended as quickly as it had begun.
On Friday, the TPD’s Violent Crimes Unit requested the public’s assistance in an effort to identify the three suspects.
The extent of the security officer’s injuries was unclear, the Miami Herald reported.
The video had over 316,000 views, and had been shared nearly 8,000 times as of Monday afternoon.
Twitter users were quick to defend the security guard, and denounced the unprovoked assault.
The Aqua Palms Apartments are touted as “luxury off-campus housing” units for Florida State University students, according to the facility’s website.
