WATCH Beaten mans brother pleads for...

PUEBLO, Colo. - A 36-year-old Pueblo man is fighting for his life after being beaten early Monday.

Jeremy Lucero was found bleeding from the head near Evans and Broadway. 

"It hurts to see him like the way he is now," Jeremy's brother, Anthony Lucero said. 

Police found Jeremy bleeding from the head, with what appeared to be a broken leg. 

"Some individuals were involved in a fight up there and he ended up on the worst end of it," Sgt. Dustin Dodge, with the Pueblo Police Department, said. 

What happened during the assault has left Jeremy in the intensive care unit at Parkview Medical Center fighting for his life. 

"To see him like that, they broke his ankle, he shattered his jaw, and somebody that small, why would they beat him with a bat?" Lucero said.

Anthony says Jeremy is disabled and the entire situation doesn't make any sense. 

"To do that to somebody that is innocent is not OK," Lucero said. 

Police are still trying to piece together what exactly happened Monday, but Lucero said his brother was found outside the Broadway Tavern and Grill. He hopes that whoever committed the crime is caught soon. 

"I want these people to come forward," Lucero said. "I mean they need to pay for what they did that's all I want."

"At some point, I do expect arrests," Dodge said. 

While the Pueblo Police Department continues to work the case, the Lucero family is praying for Jeremy's recovery. 

"We pray that my brother makes it and then he comes out the same person that he was before this happened to him," Lucero said. 

Police are still working leads in the case, anyone with information is asked to call Pueblo police.
