A Marathon man was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital after a fight with three other men early this morning on 65th Street Oceanside in Marathon.
The 30 year old victim, Yandy Carrillo, was at the Nowhere Bar and Grill with friends. The group had a dispute amongst themselves at the bar and the victim and two women who were with him left the bar.
When they got out side and were waiting for a taxi, an acquaintance offered them a ride home. There were two other men in the car with him. The group got into the car and they all drove to 65th Street.
Once there, the two women got out of the car and began walking across the street to go home. They heard arguing behind them. The three men in the car, who are from Guatemala, were arguing with the victim, who is Cuban. The argument was reportedly over the difference in their nationalities.
The three men attacked the victim, hitting and punching him. One of the women intervened and tried to stop the fight. She was pushed to the ground and punched numerous times.
When deputies arrived just after 4 a.m., the three attackers had fled the scene. The victim had to be airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment of severe injuries to his face and head. The women were able to identify the attackers. Their car was found parked at a nearby apartment complex, but deputies were unable to locate the suspects at that location.
Detectives will be investigating the case.
