At dawn this Sunday there was an episode of violence that miraculously did not end in tragedy: a 21-year-old was brutally attacked by seven people on the way out of a birthday party in the area of 473 and 30 in City Bell. In contact with THE DAY, a relative of the victim, pointed out and called the attackers “rugby players.”
Fortunately, despite the blows and the bottles he received, the attacked young man only had injuries, although for a moment he was unconscious. “He’s badly hurt, but he’s fine,” they pointed to this medium.
The incident happened around 4 in the morning, and was recorded on the security cameras of a neighbor who quickly contacted the relatives of the victim. “We want the Albatros Club to sanction these boys who beat savagely, we have already identified several, but we do not know of others”, I trust the contact.
In this sense, from the family of the beaten boy they point to the violent “as members of the Club Albatros team”, and the age range of the same goes between 21 to 25 years. “They fled in a white Hyundai Tucson truck. What we are looking for is for the club to suspend them or do something about it, it cannot be that they let people, how they are, represent them.“they said.
They also said that the young man who received the beating does not do any sports, and that “They hit him because of an argument that made no sense”. During the afternoon of this Sunday they approached to make the respective complaint to the City Bell police station of the identified “aggressors”.
The word of the Albatros Club
Minutes after the images were released, Ricardo Benavídez, president of the rugby institution, spoke with EL DIA and said: “The video is not very clear but we are trying to verify if their identity is possible, to confirm or not if they are club players, if so we will take the corresponding actions in the case.”
“Of course, whether or not they are players of our club, we repudiate any act of violence because we believe that it is not the solution to any problem”, clarified.
