A California man, 28-year-old Amador Rebollero of Traver, was sentenced to five years in prison on Monday after a brutal attack on two men in a restroom at the San Francisco 49er’s Levi’s Stadium. According to the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office, Rebollero plead no contest to a single count of assault with a deadly weapon with near certainty to cause major bodily harm and the special allegation of causing great bodily harm, and a similar charge for the second victim in the attack.
On the night of October 5, 2014, Rebollero was standing in line in the restroom at the stadium when one of the victims tapped him on the shoulder to show him a urinal that had just become available, according to investigators. Moments later, Rebollero began a verbal altercation with the man and then “sucker punched” the victim, striking him multiple times in the head, knocking him unconscious.
Emergency responders claimed at the time that he may have been paralyzed. His current condition is not being released.
After the first victim was knocked unconscious, the cousin of the man attempted to fight off Rebollero, but was attacked by him and his brother Dario, 35, as stated by authorities. An August trial will decide the fate for Dario.
