MAR VISTA (CBSLA)  — A former pro wrestler was beaten severely in front of his Mar Vista home Tuesday.

Neighbors said it all apparently began over a parking dispute.

As many as six young men beat Tom Magee, who will be 60 in July.

Holmstrom says blood is still visible on the sidewalk.

YouTube video shows Magee when he weighed 265 pounds and fought with what was then called WWF in the ’80s.

A true Goliath in the ring, Magee later became a neighborhood watchdog.

“Tom came and encountered the young men, and it proceeded to a fight,” says friend Kendall Noxxel.

Magee suffered a broken jaw, broken eye socket and concussion.

“It was sort of a conflict over who was allowed to park in this spot,” Noxxel said.

A neighbor who was a witness but didn’t want to show her face on camera described the horrendous scene.

“They were literally kicking him, punching him in the face and in the head,” said the neighbor.

She said six men were involved in the attack. When neighbors came out to see what was going on, the men took off.

When they rushed over to Magee, they said he was incoherent.

“To me, it was attempted murder. If we wouldn’t have come out here I don’t know if he would be alive. To look at his face if you saw his face right now and saw what they were doing to him, he’s really lucky to be alive,” the neighbor said.

LAPD robbery detectives are investigating. Thursday afternoon, they said two men were taken into custody. They were identified as Justin Lee, 20, and Degrate Bryant, also 20.

Both have been booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

The arrests provide a sense of relief for neighbors. Not only for their own safety but to let their watchdog know they have his back.

Magee has a long recovery ahead. But he is out of the hospital and recovering at home.

  1. Members of the anti-civilization super predator Killmonger sect at it again…

  2. “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  3. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by a mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive we would be poorer as a nation.

    1. is your comment the cheeky sarcasm of a racist, or are you being sincere? I honestly cannot tell. If you are being sincere, your statements are absolutely inappropriate in the extreme to appear below this article. it is far more an opportunity to point out the grotesque.problems withing the African American community that cause young black men such as these to commit such heinous crimes. To enumerate them, I would start with lack of a disciplinary, authoritative father figure in the home, while being raised by a single mother head of house. I would follow that with the illegitimacy rates of black births which bring about single mother heads of house. Next i would point to schools drop out rate of black males, which brings us to the reason unemployment, another problem, is so high among blacks.But the largest over arching problem within the black community would be denial within the black community. The rage of blacks today is totally out of proportion to the actual suffering of their ancestors, just as the blame for past egregious conditions is out of place for today’s whites. Taking responsibility for self inflicted problems has seemingly yet to be embraced by most blacks. Most want to cite “institutional racism”, “white privilege”, and lack of money being thrust into social programs. All these excuses are simply bullocks. So spare us, Claudia, your sycophantic fawning to make your narcissistic, guilt ridden self feel better.

      1. Did someone invade your safe space there snowflake? If you aren’t smart enough to discern the difference between sarcasm and sincerity, your mother should take away your keyboard and restrict your internet access

      2. Steve, it is very obviously sarcasm.

  4. Another white victim of black violence you won’t see on the national news.
