3 Men, Anthony Maldonado, Rafael Medina Jr and Octavious Medina, accused of assaulting 6ix9ine arrested in Florida

3 Men accused of assaulting 6ix9ine arrested in Florida.

Three men accused of a March 21 assault on 6ix9ine were arrested in Florida on Thursday.

The Associated Press writes via a Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office representative that 43-year-old Rafael Medina Jr., Octavious Medina, age 23, and Anthony Maldonado, 25, are now in custody. They were seen on surveillance footage and social media clips.

“The three suspects were being booked into Palm Beach County jail Thursday night, deputies said,” reads the AP’s brief report.

6ix9ine was taken to the hospital with injuries to his jaw, ribs, and back. One clip that instantly started circulating showed the 26-year-old with a bloody face, walking away in socks while hollering, “Y’all n***as jumped me.” 

“He was attacked in a Sauna at a gym by three or four thugs who beat him up (he tried fighting back),” his lawyer Lance Lazzaro said in a statement provided to Complex. “He had cuts to his face and bruises. Employees heard the disturbance and the perpetrators fled. Police in South Florida were called and he was transported via ambulance to a local hospital.”

They are accused of assaulting and robbing the rapper, whom the office identified by his real name, Daniel Hernandez.

Jail records show that Rafael Medina and Maldonado were being held on suspicion of felony battery and robbery charges. Records were not available for Octavious Medina.

It was not clear whether they have lawyers to speak on their behalf.

The rapper, 26, was in a sauna at an LA Fitness south of West Palm Beach on March 21 when a group of people approached him and “beat him up," his lawyer said.

The rapper tried to fight back, Lazzaro said, and the group is alleged to have fled after employees heard the disturbance.

Video posted on social media showed him walking through the gym with blood on his face.

The sheriff’s office said in a separate statement that deputies were alerted to the altercation and that the rapper was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

In 2019, 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to multiple counts of racketeering, firearms offenses and drug trafficking. He faced 47 years behind bars but was given a reduced sentence after his testimony helped prosecutors convict two notorious gang leaders.
