On April 4, 2015 at approximately 12:40 AM, a fight occurred Inside Kildare’s Pub where the victim was punched in the face and knocked unconscious by an unknown assailant, later identified as Jordan Powell (21). During the course of the investigation surveillance system video from Kildare’s showed that the majority of the incident was captured. This video was provided to the Newark Police to aid in the investigation. On the video the victim can be seen being thrown to the ground by an off duty Kildare’s employee Johnathon Brown (24). Powell is then seen punching the victim in the face causing injury. Another person questioned during the initial incident was Jaxon Brown (24) who is a bouncer at Kildare’s and working this night. Jaxon is the twin brother of Johnathon Brown.
During the initial stages of this investigation all persons involved denied knowing Powell.
