The first video of the brutal beating early Saturday morning that left a 23-year-old woman brain dead has surfaced on Facebook. The short, nine-second video, which was anonymously sent to a friend of the victim, was posted late last night and shows a group of people crowding around the beating as one security guard tries to intervene. Although extremely grainy, you can see two men administering kicks to the victim, who lays on the bottom.

You can see the video after the jump. As always, if you have any information, recognize any of the people on the scene, can tell who the attackers are--anything--call either number on the posters above or the Santa Ana Police Department. Or, if you prefer, you can pass info to us.

If you'd rather not contact the police and prefer to pass information to the Weekly, my email is below -- anonymity guaranteed.

Filth from South of the Border. Nothing else needs to be said.

I didn't even think of race at all when looking at this video.  I thought of sex and what pussies men are who kick a petite woman who is on the ground.  WTF cares what race they are! I'd like to string them up nads first.

Wow. The main issue is that this girl suffered in the hands of these violent people.  Blaming an entire population of people  or culture of people, whether "Mexican" or "Latino" is not right.  Deport them? Not all Hispanics/Latinos are here illegally.  How this became a race issue is sad.

Santa Ana needs to take a look at Long Beach and copy how they secure Pine Street! They should of built street to street! Enclose the street and fill with securtiy! We know what the trouble makers look like even though the hipsters are trying to dress like cholos!

Its hard to believe that the identities of two men who would kick a woman until she was brain dead would be protected by a crowd of people.  We live in a sick world.

The level of racism here is staggering. The ignorance here is even higher. I'm appalled by what people have to say regarding Hispanics based on five idiots  (Which I agree should rot in jail). That's like me generalizing the entire white population as crazy based on the actions of the BTK killer. That's just dumb. There's so much bad in the world coming from every corner, and racist people honestly make it worse. FYI, the color of your skin is actually a result of years of evolution as a result of the interplay that occurs between the sun and your body. White, black, and brown are just colors.

Where were her friends? why didn't they do anything to help her, all this could have been avoided, if Security or Bouncers were there.

Death penalty! Let's stand up and remove scum from the gene pool before it reproduces. Enough with our pussy-footing justice system. F**k with the bull, you get the horns!

This is what happens when u let the Mexicans into this country. They feel like their entitled. They only care about themselves. They want everyone in this country to learn their language because they are too lazy to learn our language! I hope the cops deport the people who did this.

The way it usually works is that the hembra starts the shit first then expects her man to jump in.  He predictably does, then the mud people instinct kicks in and it becomes a boot party.

I can't say for sure that I'd take on a pack of cholo's to save a stranger. I'd like to think I would but the reality is that I love my daughter more than some random club chick.

I think these latino girls were jealous of the Asian girl. Problems with latino girls is that you have to go out with them early before they blowup, especially before they are pregnant. Once they are pregnant, statistically, for the most part, they will never lose the weight. I do remember that latino girls are loyal to the guys they are with. Based on my experienced, they will do whatever you request them to do and they are wild. It's very difficult to let them go once you make them fall in love with you. They will do anything to keep you around (of course, I always treat them well unlike the latino guys). No wonder I had such difficulties breaking up with them. I bet these latino girls were heavyset and probably unattractive. 


Problems with santa ana is that there are too many uneducated latinos, most of them are on welfare (EBT) and they have too many kids. They only think of the present and not the future. They spray paint the walls and throw shoes on the telephone poles to let others know that this is their turf. They do not realized that they are devaluing the area thus no Whites, middle eastern, indians (i am talking about indians from india) or Asians really want to live with latinos. 


All of the latinos I dated in the past are well educated latinos with nice figures. I bet a lot of these machismo Mexican guys would have love to date the “Xs” that I had dated but they are too busy drinking beer because the media advertises that its “kool” to drink and that by drinking you will get more girls (all delusional). Perhaps lose the weight and get real jobs then you will have better looking girls at your side. Most of these latino guys and girls marry at such early age with kids, they throw their entire lives down the drain. Latinos for the most part are LOSERS, especially in santa ana.

This is a disgusting act of violence, and stupid racist assholes like Steve San Pendejo and others attracted other assholes to beat on them back in the 70's in GG and Fullerton, it's not about you bitches!!!

so sad, i lived there in the past and i never had problems with no one not even in the club/bar scene. something must of gone really bad. this area is the party spot and ive walked alone back home in my days of bars/clubs and i never came across any issues with anyone of any culture. SO sad:( hope they find/prosecute them. no matter what culture ur from any can be capable of un-human actions. we have seen these type of cases throughout history. My heart goes out to the family :(

I'm mad that whoever was recording didn't even bother to help. That makes them just as disgusting as the people beating the poor girl.

How much more violence do we need to see before CA decides that perhaps we should take Arizona's example?? A mob of 5 mexicans beating up on female, while the other standbys watch and record. CLOSE THE BORDER! This is the culture they perpetuate.

Rereading won't help. The media doesn't generally report on the race of criminals for fear that we will all figure out which races are more likely to commit these kinds of crimes. Here's how I know, however: The PC police have no authority over me so I am able to expand my reasoning abilities beyond those allowed by political correctness. Given the details, that she was a tiny little woman beaten down by 5 people, at least two of whom were men, in the city of Santa Ana, one can conclude with 90% certainty that they were hispanic. Also, if you watch the video you will see that they are almost certainly hispanic, but could be of some other race found between black and white. The final kicker is this: they have a hispanic female in custody and they are currently searching for more hispanics. Ponder it for a bit and then agree that our conclusions were reasonable. Now, I have to get back to reading the OC Register. They miss me. ;)

What a bunch of fu8king animals. I hope they are found and then well see how tough they are on the main yard, they will probably be wearing skirts out made out of tshirts in prison...

I did not and will not watch the video. Can't stomach violence. Feeling so very sad for this poor girl and for her family and friends from all that I have read and from driving by the impromptu memorial on the way to work. : (((. I love Santa Ana and have lived here for years. These animals who did this are not the types of people whom I have met in this dynamic city, and the Santora district has been making great strides to be a great community space. Don't know where these animals came from, or why this took place. It's just heartbreaking on so many levels. This city is filled with good, caring souls who want to make the world a better place. I hope downtown will not be scarred forever by this profoundly tragic incident. : ((((

Whoever did this needs to get the death penalty and swiftly.. If we processed these animals like we should, it might make some worry about what would happen to them when they do the same thing... They fight in packs..

I cant imagine how low a man would have to be to beat a girl. I dont care what she did. If i was there I would have responded the same way I always do when I see a man hit a woman: lose my shit and go aggro on him until he stopped moving.

@Dreababyyy  Maybe you should brush up on your knowledge of early Mexican/US history and your grammar skills. You should be ashamed of your comment for multiple reasons.

that is the most absolute ignorant comment someone can make after such a violent act of crime. this could have been an act of racism and yet ignore people like yourself make racist comments just a fuel the rage of these idiots. Think about what you say before you make stupid post. How about saying something positive for the family and friends that lost a loved one.

@CloseTheBorder  the border is closed. Don't make the mistake of painting anyone who appears to be brown as an illegal alien. Ignorance is ubiquitous.

@elgrecodesign79  @rpazos77 The comments I made are valid and are not ignorant unless you prefer that I should tell lies such as living in santa ana is considered one of the safest place in America as compared to Irvine, hb, san marino, laguna Niguel, arcadia, etc; the educational system in santa ana, with a large population of latinos, are excellent as compared to the other cities mentioned above because latinos are well educated; There are more latinos in college as compared to Asians and whites; latino men knows how to treat their women, they treat their ladies like princess and not considered them their properties, etc. I can go on and on with these fallacy statements. If u think living with latinos considered safe and wise, you are living in fantasy land. Also, I am correct about latino women, date them young and early. Beautiful figures at early ages, but after the pregnancy, it’s a totally different story
