BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - Brockton Police are seeking the public’s help to gather evidence and identify suspects in connection with an assault on two men: a 68-year-old and a 35-year-old.

The incident happened shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Walnut Street on Sept. 24, when a group of men attacked the other two.

Friends of the older victim, Carlos Cardoso, said he is still hospitalized and is unable to speak due to head trauma.

In the graphic video, three men are visible cornering another man on Walnut Street. Cardoso then walks toward the commotion, trying to stop it. Moments later, another man approaches, and punches Cardoso in the face, pushes him to the ground, stomps on his face, then walks away.

The other men, meanwhile, continued to fight with Cardoso’s friend, punching and kicking him. One was armed with a baseball bat. The beating lasted for several minutes before the group dispersed, leaving Cardoso and his friend on the ground.

Two people have already been charged with Assault and Battery with a Deadly Weapon.

Anyone with information on the case or who can identify the people in the video are urged to call the Brockton Police Detective Bureau at 508-941-0234.
