15-88On August 29th, 2015, at approximately 2:30 A.M., an aggravated battery took place in a parking area at the Waffle House located at 4660 West New Haven Avenue, West Melbourne.

An independent witness filmed the incident from inside the Waffle House with his smart phone. The white male pictured, kicked and bettered the victim, causing the victim to lose consciousness. Once unconscious, a second suspect, identified as 30-year-old John Keller, of Palm Bay, got on top of the victim and battered the victim with his fists and feet.

A third subject was identified as 23-year-old female, who is not being named at this time.

Due to the agravated nature of this attack, the victim sustained multiple facial fractures and was transported to a local emergency trauma center in critical condition.

All subjects were known to have been at Bare Assets earlier in the evening and are also
known to frequent that establishment.

Sheriff investigators are asking the public’s assistance in identifying the white male shown in the picture.

John Keller has since been arrested for this case and an additional VOP. He is currently being held in the Brevard County Jail on a No Bond status.
