According to the outlet, both Cuevas and Barrera had an “ongoing parking dispute” with the 28-year-old. When the pair spotted the man on the street on Friday, they reportedly decided to assault him.
The Brutal Assault On The 28-Year-Old Victim
In a 10-second video clip, Barrera can be seen striking the man with a bat multiple times, as reported by New York Post. To make matters more shocking, the attack occurs in the middle of the street, in broad daylight.
The clip begins with the victim, already seen on the ground, with blood splatter next to him. As the video continues rolling, a man is shown kicking him in the back and in the head.
Then, a woman strikes him in the head with a bat.
An onlooker can be heard screaming as the attack ensues.
“Oh my God, stop!”
The victim is then seen rolling over to his stomach. But instead of the male attacker walking away, he walks back to the victim and strikes him once more in the head.
The male attacker appeared to have an object in his hand.
Additionally, the outlet also reported that the man was stabbed five times “throughout the body.”
