Cody Robinson said he was beaten and stomped on outside a San Antonio bar in an apparent knock-out style attack.
A man who was attacked after leaving a bar on the Northwest Side early Friday might have been a victim of the knockout game.
Cody Robinson, 30, said he had just arrived at his car after leaving the España Bar de Tapas, at 5638 W. Hausman Road, around 2 a.m. when an unidentified man punched him in the face and shouted “knockout.”
The knockout game is a random act of violence in which an assailant attempts to knock out a person with one punch. According to the Associated Press, the game has resulted in serious injuries, even death, nationally.
Robinson’s attack didn’t stop after the punch. He said at least four men surrounded and repeatedly stomped on him.
San Antonio Police, however, refused to call Robinson a knockout game victim because of what he told officers at the scene.
According to a police report, Robinson said he left the bar while a large fight was going on outside. As he walked through the fight to get to his car, a man questioned him. After a brief exchange, the report said, Robinson told officers approximately eight men jumped him.
