After the game, police say Cortes went to Pat's with his father and friend. They got into an argument with four males wearing yellow soccer jerseys with Club America written across the shirt. That argument escalated into a fight.

Video released by Philadelphia police showed the brutal attack from multiple angles.

One camera showed the victim being punched and kicked while on the ground. Another camera showed one of the suspects wildly swinging a metal trash can lid.

After the melee, the suspects left along with the rest of their group in two vehicles.

Two additional suspects, Osvaldo "Willie" Pedraza, 34, and Victor Pedraza, 32, are still being sought at this time.
