An investigative journalist for Fox News was viciously attacked in the midst of trying to capture a story about a couple who have allegedly been running a massive real estate fraud ring. The Suleimans have purchased as many as 20 homes under other people’s names and rented them out to collect the income. The pair weren’t too keen on having their illegal behavior uncovered.
John Mattes was trying to tape a segment with one of the victims of the couple’s identity theft, when he was assaulted by the wife first, and then her husband. They even threatened to go get a gun at one point, but luckily could not find it. When the police showed up, they took Mr. Suleiman into custody, but not before he bloodied the reporter’s face.
Suleiman will serve one year in county jail for his assault. His wife, Rosa, got off with just 3 years probation and 30 days of community service.
This is quite a crazy video! Let us know what you think in the comments section!
