My good friend and coworker walked into our local home improvement store (national chain) this morning at 10:30. He was looking for a shower curtain rod and made a pit stop to the bathroom. While washing his hands a man walked in, furious, yelling that he was going to whoop his *** for sleeping with his wife. My friend is a very kind, compassionate man that has been a youth leader at church for years. He began apologizing for the confusion and tries to convince the much larger man that he has the wrong guy.
The man then attacks him and beats him very horribly for around 9 minutes (which is an ETERNITY in a fight). A few employees heard the noise and came in screaming for the man to stop but he wuold not. They actually called the police and through the whole response time for the PD and them running through the store, the beating continued. The police were actually the ones to break up the fight.
My father said my friend called him and asked if he could come outside. I have not seen him since the incident, but my father said its HORRIBLE. head 3-4 times swollen, eyes swollen shut, lips split and swollen like there is an orange peel in his mouth. This guy is the kindest, gentlist man who has had a very tough life. Breaks my heart to hear about this sensless violence. I texted him and he has been in the ER for 4 hours waiting to be seen.
BG was arrested on spot.
