The story of the East Village beating we first told you about on Wednesday hit the mainstream last night. FOX 5 followed up on our story, and was able to obtain the surveillance video that purportedly shows the mob kicking the crap out of the twins on First Avenue. Both were heading home at around 5 am Sunday morning when the group blocked the sidewalk and began taunting one of the brothers. The bartender brother intervened and received the brunt of the beating. He was treated for multiple injuries, including a concussion, multiple facial bone fractures including around the eye socket, and severe bruising.
As for the accusations made by the girlfriend that the police closed the case shortly after the incident, FOX reports that the NYPD completely disagrees:
The NYPD said the case is definitely not closed. Police officials told me that a very active investigation is going on and that detectives hope to meet with the victim Friday to get information that can lead to arrests.
