DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - A teen said he was minding his own business in his neighborhood clubhouse when he was suddenly attacked by a stranger.
Seventeen-year-old Jason Colmenares was with his friend at the Toscana Apartment complex clubhouse off of Davie Road when the offender struck him.
7News cameras rolled as Colmenares and his father, Juan, viewed the surveillance footage for the first time.
The video released by Davie Police showed the attacker playing pool with an older man before suddenly walking over the Colmenares and hitting him with the pool cue.
“And he walked out, you know, like nothing happened,” said Juan.
Colmenares said he didn’t know who that man was and had never seen him before. The victim said when the attacker walked away, he said, “You know what you did to my sister.”
“He was trying to hit me more than one time,” Colmenares said. “He first came, and he hit me, and my friend tried to stop him, but I don’t remember exactly what happened because it was happening from my back. I tried to cover my head, and that was all.”
The 17-year-old said he doesn’t know why this happened.
The subject walked out with his friend shortly after.
The victim had to have several staples put in his skull due to the impact but said he will be OK.
“It can happen at any time. You can be going to a pool, and something can happen to you,” said the victim.
“Supposed to be a safe place because it’s in our condominium, in our area,” said Juan. “We would like to find the person. Today it was for us, tomorrow somebody else.”
