SPOKANE, Wash. -

A man is slowly but surely healing after he was jumped by strangers last Sunday morning.

The 36-year-old disabled veteran was out celebrating Gay Pride in downtown Spokane. His brother, who was with him all night, said they were bouncing around between Lucky's and Stray.

"This was a senseless crime," the victim's brother said. "Several people were attacking peaceful people celebrating."

The victim had bleeding on his brain and a fractured skull according to family members. He has regained consciousness and will move to a rehabilitation facility in the coming days. Loved ones say he has no memory of the assault.

His brother said it all started when a woman bumped into the victim. Within seconds she was assaulting him, and other men also began attacking.

"He got knocked down," his brother said. "His head hit the road."

Witnesses said there were up to seven men attacking the brothers. If you have any information, please call Spokane Police Major Crimes Detectives.
