A 27-year-old man was assaulted as he left a Bluffton sports bar at about 2 a.m. Thursday, and police have arrested two suspects and are searching for a third.
On the night of the incident, the victim argued with Roger Ward, 22, of Bluffton, at Jocks Sports Bar, according to a news release from the Bluffton Police Department. When the bar closed and the victim left, he was met outside by Kyle Mays, 21, Sonny Huynh, 23, both of Bluffton, and Mays.
The three men then attacked the victim, the news release said.
The victim was taken to Hilton Head Hospital, then transported to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah because of the severity of his injuries. He released Friday morning, according to the news release, which did not include the victimâ€™s name.
Ward and Mays have been arrested and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and are in the Beaufort County Detention Center awaiting bond hearings, the release said.
Authorities are still searching for Huynh, who they also intend to charge with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is encouraged to call 911.
