Eduardo “Piku” Herrera just needed a friend Friday night.|
The 36-year-old Waynesboro man lost his 12-pack of beer to three thieves, caught a baseball bat beatdown trying to get it back, dodged more bat swipes while witnesses watched in the street, then had to walk home two hours from the hospital after getting staples behind his left ear.
“For a 12-pack of beer?” Herrera said Monday, laughing and showing off his scabbed left ear and bruises along his back. “I would have shared ... that was my last six dollars too.”
David Sanchez, 20, Isaias Rojas, 22, and Jose Sanchez-Aregin, 20, all of Waynesboro, face felony malicious wounding and armed robbery charges in connection to the attack.
Through laughs and incredulous profanity, Herrera recounted the night: Walking back from the Wilco station after 9 p.m., Rojas swiped Herrera’s 12-pack of Natural Light on the street near the apartment building at 260 North Commerce Ave. Herrera was calmed when he was told to go to the second floor to get the beer back.
“I went upstairs and surprise!” Herrera said. “When I bent down, this other motherf——- came with a baseball bat.”
