Help authorities locate Desmond & Michael Taylor

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tuesday, authorities issued arrest warrants for two suspects charged in a violent assault this weekend. Tuesday night, those suspects remained on the loose, and now they're on NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted Wall.

We first alerted people to the assault and following search for three unidentified suspects on Saturday. That's when police were called to the Sunset Motel on Clovis Highway, just before 5 a.m. They found, Danny Mahaffey, 55, unconscious and severely beaten.

Court papers now reveal only two suspects beat Mahaffey, and the assault was caught on tape. Investigators did not want to release that at this time, but the affidavit states the suspects punched and kicked Mahaffey in the head several times, and drug his unconscious body around the motel's front yard.

Now, authorities have warrants for two suspects. They are 25-year-old Desmond Taylor and 19-year-old Michael Taylor. Both men are charged with aggravated assault. If you know where these suspects are or how to find them, call Crime Line right now at (806) 741-1000. You can remain anonymous.

We did check, and the victim, Mahaffey remained hospitalized Tuesday night. He had been upgraded to serious, but stable condition.
