"You need to come talk to us, or we'll come find you."
He's outnumbered, outmuscled and overpowered, but for some reason he keeps talking trash.
Until he can no longer breathe.
A video posted to YouTube Sunday — and since removed by the website — shows a brutal Saturday night beatdown in Albuquerque's central entertainment district.
As the video starts, an unidentified man is being held by a group of men, at least some of whom are bouncers, according to the video poster, who wrote:
I avoid downtown on party nights because it gets nasty down there. As I walk down the street to get my friend, I see this. A bouncer kicking a guys head and the other stands on his neck. I got the bouncer off his neck, only after I explained that he would kill the guy if he continued to stand on his neck. What is wrong with people?
The brutal blows render the man seemingly unconscious.
Bizarrely, the man seems to recover enough to get involved in another altercation which was also captured on video (for reasons that are unclear, YouTube saw fit to remove the first video but not the second), and he goes limp once again after being attacked by a much bigger, shirtless man (content warning: disturbing violence and strong language):
Police are now searching for the men involved in the assault.
"Off the cuff, it's a straight-up felony," Albuquerque Police spokesman Simon Drobik told TheBlaze on Sunday, speaking of the bouncer who kicked the man in the head. "It looked like [the victim] went unconscious, he got knocked so hard."
Drobik confirmed that police had seen the video of the bouncers' assault, and urged the men involved to come forward.
"You need to come talk to us, or we'll come find you," Drobik said.
Drobik said police had been dispatched to the scene Saturday night, but were still looking for the bouncers as well as the victim, who was not at the scene when police arrived.
Drobik urged anyone with information on the incident to call (505)242-COPS.
