Two suspects were arrested for beating two men in a bathroom at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara just before Sunday’s game between the 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, police said.
The attack — which was captured on video by another fan who posted the footage to YouTube — happened in a restroom on the 300 level on the north side of the stadium just before the 1:25 p.m. kickoff, said Santa Clara police Lt. Kurt Clarke.
Dario Rebollero, 34, and Amador Rebollero, 27, were arrested on suspicion of felony assault minutes after police saw a video of the attack, Clarke said.
The victims, whom police did not identify, were taken to a hospital. One victim was treated and released and the other remained at the hospital Monday in serious condition, Clarke said.
On Sunday, a YouTube user posted a video of the alleged assault, along with the message, “First thing that happened when entering bathroom. All due to impatience for an open stall.”
In the video, one suspect throws three punches at the first victim with his right fist. The first blow appears to be a sucker-punch, and the third appears to cause the man to fall unconscious to the floor.
The attacker and a second man then turn their attention to the second victim, throwing him to the ground and unleashing a barrage of punches to his head.
49ers officials released a statement Monday saying the safety of fans is the team’s top priority.
“We were appalled to see the video of the attack on the victims,” the statement said, “and salute the Santa Clara Police Department on their quick response that resulted in the apprehension of the two suspects.”
