JUPITER, Fla. — As LeRoy Wright Jr. and his 14-year-old son were surrounded and threatened by three men at Juno Beach Park in May, several people stood nearby either watching or videotaping the incident.
Not Marine veteran Wen Jones.
Fearing that Wright and his son were on the verge of being beaten, Jones stepped into the fracas.
The three men then beat Jones until he was unconscious, according to a report on abcnews.go.com.
Jones was taken to the hospital where he received treatment for a broken eye bone and where he received multiple stitches for facial wounds, according to the ABC news report, which added that the three suspects are facing felony charges.
