Arrests have been made months after a brutal beating of a former Marine who stepped in to save a 14-year-old boy and his father being bullied by three men.
Wen Jones, a 43-year-old father of two, was leaving Juno Beach Park in Florida on May 19 when he noticed a pack of 20-year-old men harassing a boy and his father, the Sun Sentinel reported. Sensing the men were about to attack, Jones got involved.
"I couldn't stand there and watch this older guy and kid get beaten up," Jones said.
The three men, all athletically built, allegedly turned their attention to Jones, who was urging them to calm down. Jones described being knocked unconscious by one of the men.
"When I came to, I was being beaten in the face," he said.
Jones suffered a concussion that he said still makes him feel foggy months later, along with fractured bones and an eye swollen shut. The former Marine required surgery after the attack.
Tyler Dylan Carswell, Eric Michael Deiter and Cody Moore Roon are now facing aggravated battery charges, upgraded to felonies because of the severity of Jones' injuries, according to ABC News.
