A 33-year-old Denver father who took his kids to a skateboarding park was beaten by more than two dozen teens and young men at the park.
Denver Police say the victim took his three children to the Denver Skatepark Wednesday night. When some other skateboarders appeared to be in a scuffle, police say the father asked what was going on and was hit in the back of the head with a skateboard.
Police say more than two dozen skateboarders joined in the melee, striking the father with skateboards. The victim received a head injury, a fractured back vertebrae and a broken elbow.
Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Denver Post there have been no arrests. The newspaper did not name the father.
