19 year-old Christopher Phillips was attacked early Sunday morning by three white men at the party, resulting in four missing teeth, a fractured jaw, and cuts and bruises.
“That was probably the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my entire life,” Phillips told ABC 7 News.
A student at the College of DuPage, Phillips claims that he after attempting to speak to a young white female, he was accosted by Thomas Randich.
“He was like, ‘Yeah, you’re talking to the wrong girl.’ I was like, I looked at him – I’m confused – I was like, ‘What do you mean I’m talking to the wrong girl?'” said Phillips.
When he attempted to a walk away, he was punched from behind and then repeatedly kicked and attacked by Randich, his brother Jake, and Michael Mungovan. As the men left, Phillips heard them shout racial slurs.
“It’s like, ‘This is what that N gets,’ and, ‘These Ns think they can do anything,'” Phillips said.
“He was talking to a white girl, and they didn’t like it. And they jumped on him,” Phillips’s father, LaMonte Phillips, said.
On Wednesday, the DuPage County State’s Attorney declined to offer details about the beating, saying they continue to investigate and that additional charges are possible.
His father spoke to ABC 7 News and denied that his son was involved in the crime, claiming misidentification.
