Police search for group seen on video brutally beating grandfather along Hollywood Broadwalk
Police officers are searching for a group of people after a South Florida man was attacked simply for trying to take his grandson to a public bathroom.
The brutal beating that happened on June 19 was captured on cellphone video.
The victim’s wife, Mayra Nodarse, said it all started when she was simply trying to take her grandson to the bathroom on Tyler Street along the Hollywood Broadwalk.
People inside were blocking others from using the bathroom, and a scuffle ensued.
“They kicked him and when he fell to the floor, everybody started punching him,” Nodarse said. “He was snoring with his eyes open, so I was like, ‘You killed him, you killed him,’ and they left.”
The victim, Wilbert Nodarse, told Local 10 News’ Hatzel Vela in Spanish that he doesn’t remember much.
Police said when they showed up, he was on the ground, unconscious but breathing.
“I just want justice,” said Mayra Nodarse. “I just want them to be caught.”
In addition to the injuries, the couple is also dealing with hospital bills, and they want these people brought to justice.
Anyone with information or who thinks they recognize someone in the video is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
