(VENTURA, Calif.) -- Two harbor employees are suing the city and its Police Department, alleging that officers used excessive force and violated their constitutional rights.

Edward Zizumbo, 28, and his brother Santiago, 21, allege that Ventura police officers repeatedly struck them with a baton as they were standing on Spinnaker Drive while returning from a lunch break on Feb. 2, 2000, according to the suit. Both men suffered serious injuries that sent them to the hospital, the lawsuits maintain.

"The police officers started attacking us for no reason," Edward Zizumbo said in an interview this week. "It made me feel really upset, especially because we were at my work. That made me look bad."
