SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Two men assaulted in a bathroom at Levi's Stadium before the start of a San Francisco 49ers' game are suing the team, saying it failed to provide adequate security.
Kiran and Amish Patel say in the lawsuit that the 49ers had a responsibility to screen fans for intoxication and gang affiliation. The two cousins say they were attacked and seriously injured last October by two intoxicated men wearing gang symbols while waiting in line in the restroom.
Two brothers, Amador and Dario Rebollero, were charged with felony assault. Amador Rebollero pleaded guilty. Dario Rebollero pleaded no contest.
The San Jose Mercury News reports (http://bayareane.ws/1VpwGgl) that the lawsuit was filed Friday. 49ers spokesman Bob Lange said the team does not comment on pending litigation.
