These are the bruises on Randy Zavala's body, done by the hands, feet, and gun of Carlos Guevara and Julian Begay. Police shot and killed Begay late Tuesday night, after he pulled a gun on an officer. His accomplice, Guevara, was taken into police custody. But just minutes before Zavala was attacked.
"I was confronted and asked for a lighter I told the subjects I didn't have no lighter one subject turned and they faced me I was hit in the forehead with the butt of a gun. From where I got assaulted, to where they got caught, that wasn't even half a mile distance," said Zavala.
He says the pain from the attack was instant.
"I literally just started bleeding so I cleaned my eyes off and no soon that i did that the other subject pushed me to the ground, tackled me to the ground and i was literally hit three or four times in the head. Every time I tried to grab for one or someone's ankle to just wouldn't happen because the other guy was just literally pounding on my head," said Zavala.
Zavala suffered a concussion. Begay and Guevara left him bloody and bruised on the ground. But took his watch, bracelet and wallet.
"All that drama for a bill fold. If they would have just asked me pointed the gun at me, I probably would have just gave it to them."
A friend saw Zavala, helped him, then Zavala went to UMC. Meanwhile, Begay and Guevara, were met by police.
"They were out on a mission and that mission was to do harm and to do bad," said Zavala.
Zavala, now grateful he survived, but said he's not at all surprised at what happened to his attackers.
"I didn't think it was going to last long not the way he was going at me i really didn't because the way he did me I'm sure he was waiting to go to another subject any where any body any item soon so when i heard that I'm just glad they got them before they got any further than me."
Zavala is recovering at home. But he does not have health insurance, so he says his next fight is working to pay off those medical bills.
