The groups moved into the street, where witnesses told police the group assaulted the victim at the entrance to the parking garage, located around the corner from the club on Market Street.

The victim was able to get away from the group and continued walking into the garage but was followed by at least one person, witnesses told police. He tried to get away by climbing onto a rail in the parking garage. He fell to Hanover Street below while climbing over the rail.
