A Johnson City woman who walked up on the aftermath of a downtown assault early Sunday said the incident was similar to the so-called Knockout game.

Johnson City police released limited details about the assault, but indicated they need the publics help in finding who is responsible.

Matthew Brookshire, 21, Bristol, Tenn. was found unconscious and bleeding on the sidewalk near the crosswalk on State of Franklin Road between two public parking lots.

A police report indicates there were no eye witnesses, but only people who walked up on the victim. But according to Breedings account, there were witnesses to the attack that reportedly involved several black men who assaulted Brookshire then ran off.

He was waiting to cross the road and the black males, one of them hit him in the head, said Katelyn Breeding.

She said it was similar to whats referred to Knockout, which is reportedly when one or more assailants try to knock out an unsuspecting person with a single sucker punch. Police have not confirmed any information about the assault being a result of Knockout.

Im not sure if thats what happened, Breeding said.I didnt actually see it, but her information was second-hand from eye-witnesses to the attack, she said.

One of them walked up and hit him in the head and he hit his head on the crosswalk pole and they were hitting and kicking him, she said.

Breeding and a friend had been out in downtown Johnson City and were walking to their car parked in the Cherry Street lot near the Battery, she said.

We walked through the breezeway to public parking. There were five or six black males who ran by us talking and yelling about they had been in a fight. They were yelling,We got him, we got him, and We beat his ass, we beat his ass, Breeding said

Yes, it is a shame when someone cannot walk down the street without thugabees attacking them. Young folk are attracted to downtown after dark to visit music venues and such and shouldn't need to be on the defense against thugs. I am not trying to be racist, but the majority of these attacks are from black teens trying to be bad asses and are mostly focused against white kids or anyone seemingly vulnerable. Seriously, how bad do you have to be to sucker punch someone with backup from your hoodlum friends? In spite of the negative comments that will follow, I recommend anyone downtown after dark carry some backup, whether it is mace or a sidearm. Of course you might be hauled downtown to the jail for possession of a concealed, but it sure is better than getting your brains beaten out by a gang of lowlife.

I suggest getting a concealed gun carry permit, and if threatened shoot their sorry behinds. If a person is in fear for their life, they are allowed to shoot the perpetrators, and that is the law. That might stop some of these heathens from beating up on the innocent.
