Victim seriously injured after being assaulted by two people on Saturday

Sioux City, Iowa - Two Sioux City men are in custody following an assault that sent one man to the hospital Saturday afternoon. 

According to court documents, 20-year-old Jakob Jaminet and 23-year-old Edgar Zavala were drinking and walking in the 1000 block of Jackson Street around 3:45 Saturday afternoon when the incident occurred. 

The victim told police that the two began bothering him and he asked them to leave. Police say that Jaminet then struck the victim in the back of the head with a full beer can, knocking him unconscious. The victim's injuries indicate that the assault continued after he was knocked to the ground. 

The victim was taken to a local hospital for his injuries. When he arrived he was missing a chunk of his scalp from the back of his head and also had several injuries to his face  and mouth. 

When questioned by police, Jaminet admitted to striking the man in the back of the head. 

Both Jaminet and Zavala are facing one count of Assault with Intent to Inflict Serious Injury. They're currently being held in the Woodbury County jail on $3,000 bonds. Both are due back in court on March 29th at 9:00 A.M.
