BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Eight men accused of taking part in a vicious brawl inside a Boston parking garage in January were arraigned Tuesday, prosecutors said.
The addition of these eight suspects brings the total number of defendants in the case to 12.
Dennis Choi, 27, of Quincy; Thanh Quang Nguyen, 24, of Everett; Sang Van Suynh, 28, of Dorchester; Christopher Tran, 27, of Quincy, were each charged with one count each of assault and battery, disorderly conduct, and affray.
Taylor Dang, 26, of Quincy, was charged with two counts of each of assault and battery, disorderly conduct, and affray.
Hung T. Duong, 30, of Dorchester; Tam Thanh Phan, 28, of South Dennis; and Duy Huynh, 22, of Malden, were charged with three counts each of assault and battery, disorderly conduct, and affray.
A judge released all of the defendants on their own recognizance and ordered them to stay away from the victims in this case.
Prosecutors said the twelve defendants were among a large group of men who attacked three men and three women inside a parking garage at 10 Park Plaza after a verbal dispute that occurred at about 2:30 a.m. on Jan. 27.
At the time of the assault, the victims were leaving the parking garage after celebrating a friend's birthday.
As a result of the attack, a 24-year-old Brookline man suffered a concussion, a separated shoulder, chipped teeth, a hand injury, and numerous cuts and bruises.
A 22-year-old man from East Greenwich, R.I. and a 23-year-old Warwick, R.I. man each suffered head and facial injuries. One of the female victims, a 24-year-old Boston woman, suffered a hand injury.
The attackers fled before police arrived, but the altercation was captured on video, prosecutors said.
Four defendants have previously been arraigned in connection with the incident.
Trong Van Huynh, 25, was arraigned March 6 and was charged with aggravated assault and battery resulting in serious bodily injury, affray, and disorderly conduct.
Alex Li Lin, 28, Hung T. Duong, 30, and Robert Tran, 25, were charged with assault and battery.
All of the defendants are expected to return to court on July 19.
