The brutal beating of a transient man has led to the arrest of three people, including the victim’s own son.

Chula Vista Police say suspect Jeffrey Woodfork, 37, attacked the man on July 12, injuring him enough to cause permanent brain damage.

Woodfork’s girlfriend, Tanay Jackson, and the transient man’s unidentified son looked on and did nothing to stop the assault, police say.

Five days later, officers arrested Woodfork and Jackson on Palm Avenue in San Diego without incident.

The victim’s son was already in the Central Jail for an unrelated incident and will face additional charges, according to police.

Woodfork was booked into jail on first-degree attempted murder, aggravated mayhem, assault with force causing great bodily injury and violation of parole. Jackson was booked on the same charges except parole violation.

Both are scheduled to be arraigned on July 21.
