Man Beaten after Stopping to Break up Fight

The man stopped his car to help a man who was being attacked in a Banning street.

A man was seriously injured after he tried to help another man who was being attacked in the street on Friday afternoon, according to the Banning Police Department.

Officers responded to a fight near 3rd and George Streets just before 2 p.m. and found a seriously injured 41-year-old man lying in the street. After an investigation, they found that the man was driving by when he witnessed the fight and stopped his car to help a man who was being attacked by two other men. Subsequently, he received a head injury for his troubles and was transported to the hospital. The person he was trying to help received minor injuries that did not require medical attention, said police.

Three suspects fled on foot, one female and two males. Officers were able to find the female but the men are still on the loose.

Anyone with additional information can call the police department at 951-922-3170.

Thankfully the female was caught. Hopefully she'll give up the names of the other two lowlifes.

God bless him but I'm so sorry that he was hurt while trying to help another person. Stupid gang bangers! Many years ago there was a gang 'war' on 4th St, with bullets flying, in front of our daughter's home. As our son-in-law lay in the doorway calling the police, our daughter shoved the baby and our 3 year old granddaughter to the floor. Thankfully no one in the house was hit, but our granddaughter was afraid to live there. She came to us for two weeks. It's time to take out the gang idiots. Put them all in a large room, give them guns and let them shoot it out until there's no one left.

Agree 100%. They have no desire to live in a civilized society. If we are unable or unwilling to neuter them so they cant reproduce, then lets put 'em in a room and let them cancel each other out. That will save lots of resources (and oxygen) for people who really want it.

They could do this, but so many Prisons and jails keep them separated by race or gang ties so they are even safer behind bars.

They better drop the rents in Banning because soon no one will want to move there. Someone getting beat up on the streets in the afternoon? I thought that only occurred in So. CENTRAL LA.
