BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - Witnesses are calling it a brutal attack in Bloomington and they say it was at the hands of John Mellencamp's teenaged sons.
Two weeks later, blood still stains the cement outside a Bloomington house.
"The three guys just came up on him and just started beating the crap out of him," said witness Chris Cain.
Cain remembers July 29 well.
"That night we had a little party," he said.
In attendance was Speck Mellencamp; 18-year-old son of legendary rocker John Mellencamp. According to Speck, he got hit in a fight at the house party and was upset.
"That was never reported to police. Apparently they decided to return on their own," said Captain Joe Qualters with the Bloomington Police Department.
Police say Speck came back hours later, now with his 19-year-old brother Hud and 19-year-old friend Ty Smith, an IU walk on football player.
It was also shortly after the 19-year-old victim, who wasn't at the party, had gotten off work and was relaxing on the porch.
"Three guys came on the porch. He said, 'Can I help you?' Before he finished his sentence, all three just started attacking him, kicking him, punching him. He said his head felt like it was getting passed around to all of them as they were hitting him and attacking him," said Cain.
In the process, witnesses say Speck pushed the victim off the porch. He landed on his back and Speck continued to punch his face.
The victim was left with facial fractures and both cheeks split open. By the time the victim's roommates got outside to help, the three ran away.
"Everyone sits there and says, 'It's just going to be swept under the rug with his dad,'" said Cain.
Bloomington Police Captain Joe Qualters says no one under his watch is given privilege.
"The fact that C felony warrants have been issued for the individuals indicates that they were not given any consideration and it does not change our efforts whatsoever. A victim is a victim," Qualters said.
The three suspects are now facing felony charges.
Chris Cain plans to be in court to stand by his friend and make sure a big name doesn't trump a big assault.
An 83-year-old woman was killed in a house fire in Owen County Tuesday night.
A multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 65 shut down lanes Wednesday morning.
The Boone County Sheriff's Office asked that drivers use caution Wednesday morning as black ice was reported on some bridges in the county.
