JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – The mother of a man beaten during a massive beach brawl is speaking out about the night her son was attacked.
Violence captured on video as a swarm of men target 20-year-old Anthony Jones.
Once knocked down, he wasn’t left with much of a chance to get up.
The images are too hard to watch for Jones' mother, Stephanie West. But she says the video begs the question: where was help?
"I'm very angry because with thousands of people at the beach like that, no police were anywhere around.”
Police say the first fight started around 7:20 Monday night as Jones is first seen in a scuffle in the dunes by the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
When an officer arrived, the group scattered south. Eventually stopping in front of the SeaWalk Pavilion.
West claims someone called for medical help for Jones, but a rescue unit never arrived.
Sgt. Tom Crumley tells Action News a fire engine arrived within three minutes of the call but says Jones was already on his way to Memorial Hospital.
“Jacksonville Beach police still didn't call. I had to ask the Memorial nurse to get somebody out to the hospital so I could do a report,” said West.
Two days later, Jones is sore and suffering from a dislocated left shoulder.
Police have not made any arrests in connection with the beach brawl near the pavilion.
West says she wants to see action from police and put away the men responsible for the vicious attack seen in the video.
"I'm not going to stop until justice be served. As a parent, that's what I'm going to do,” said West.
