MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The father of one of the victims in the Kroger parking lot attack says even though these kids seriously hurt his son, he feels bad for them.
Kroger security was combing the aisles of the parking lot Monday, but the father of one of the victims said there needs to be changes across the entire city of Memphis to stop this violence.
Mark Sauser said, "We got a call from his supervisor and we needed to come as quickly as possible."
Never in his life did he expect something like this to happen in this city, let alone to his son.
Sauser said he's seen this video of Saturday night's attack, but wont let anyone else in his family watch it. He says luckily, his 17-year-old son doesn't remember most of it.
"He had contusions on the back of his head, the side of his head where he was kicked. Bruised all over his body. But he didn't suffer a concussion and we are thankful for that," he said.
Sauser's son was one of the three people attacked at the Kroger. He was working his normal shift, but Sauser wouldn't say if he'll return to work there. They're keeping him home from school until he fully recovers from the beating.
Sauser said he feels bad for these kids. He knows they don't have a good family life, and criminal charges for this attack wont help their future.
"While my son was hurt he is going to come out of this. These kids are not going to come out of this," he said.
WREG hasn't confirmed the names of the other two victims. Sauser had no comment when we asked his opinion about a co-worker filming the beat-down rather than stepping in to help.
