According to the report, as the two were fishing, the men’s children started riding scooters around them.

After the father and his son asked the children to stop, investigators said the men started swearing at their kids.

Deputies said the victims then approached the three men, telling them they didn’t need to talk to their children that way.

The three men then allegedly grabbed baseball bats and started hitting the father and his son. Both were taken to the hospital.

Deputies said the three men are on the run and they don’t have a good description of them. They’re hoping any witnesses will come forward.
