A Pennsylvania man remains in custody, after he attacked a man outside a bar Sunday. Police say the suspect's mother became unhappy with the victim in the bar, and her son attacked the man outside.
In security camera video, he can be seen repeatedly kicking the victim in the head. A good samaritan can be seen trying to intervene, but the mother and other bystanders pushed the man to the ground. The bar is across the street from a police station, and an officer quickly rushed to the scene.
Arrested are Rhashad Carlton, 25, and his mother, Bonita Carlton, 45. She's out on bail. But Rhashad Carlton remains in jail. It's expected he'll be charged with attempted murder at a hearing next week. Police say the officer's actions prevented the victim from being beaten to death. The victim remains hospitalized with injuries to his face and neck.
