METAIRIE, La. ( WGNO ) — Jefferson Parish deputies are looking for a group of men who are accused of taking part in a brutal beating and robbery outside a Metairie bar in May, and new surveillance video could help solve the case.
Deputies say the altercation started inside Brewsky’s Bar & Grill on David Drive in Metairie before escalating outside in the parking lot.
The video shows the moment a 39-year-old man is punched so hard that he falls to the ground, and then is kicked by two of the four male suspects before being pickpocketed.
Sergeant Brandon Veal, a spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, says deputies responded to the call May 28.
“While there, they learned that a group of individuals severely beat an adult male before leaving him unconscious,” Sergeant Brandon Veal explained. “One of the individuals returned to the victim and removed personal items from his pockets before fleeing the location.”
