A wild assault in Fairfax, Virginia, was recently caught on video. The incident, dubbed by WJLA-TV as a “savage” and “mob-style attack,” included at least six individuals brutally punching and kicking one person (presumably a teenager or a young man).
The brawl was recorded by a local resident named Jack Webb. He had installed a security camera in an effort to nab the individuals who have been breaking into his work van, but, instead, he ended up capturing the incident — one that has residents and authorities, alike, deeply troubled.
The victim is seen in the video being stomped on and repeatedly beaten. The incident was so severe, Webb said, that it looked like the individual being attacked “wasn’t going to be getting up again.”
On the night the clip was recorded, a party was going on next door to Webb’s home — one that included 60 teenagers and young adults. Webb said he recalls hearing yelling.
It’s unclear whether those involved in the fight were coming from or a part of the party and the young man hosting it told WJLA-TV that the troublesome individuals who waged the attack had not been invited.

So far, the victim hasn’t pressed charges. Police have a copy of the tape and they went door-to-door on Tuesday looking for witness.
