TEMPE, Ariz. -

Police say Arizona State University fraternities are getting out of control, and they say they have the video to prove it. An all-out brawl caught on surveillance video has many residents asking the city of Tempe and police to crack down.

This comes just a week after fraternity pledge Jack Culolias goes missing.

The fight broke at an apartment complex in Tempe. Apparently the attacker lives in a neighboring complex and came over to start the fight.

At 4 a.m. on November 18, security cameras at the complex captured the group walking in. One of them pushes over a ping pong table.

Video shows a mob of nearly 20 attack the victims, punching them multiple times.

The mob was at the complex for more than 5 minutes and by the time they were finished, one of the victims had laceration on his lip, a concussion, and a fractured jaw.

According to the report released by Tempe PD, the group of fraternity members came to the complex seeking revenge. They claimed one of their members was assaulted by a member from a rival fraternity and wanted justice.

Victims told police the attackers were from the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. One of them even had the fraternity letters tattooed on his chest.

Not long after the big fight, police arrested 24-year-old Jon Kuespert and 25-year-old Nicholas Haffner.

According to Tempe police, its officers are dealing with problems like this more often thanks to ASU booting fraternities off campus.

In fact, on Alpha Drive where many of the fraternities used to be, just a dirt lot remains. The old frat houses are all gone.

So now, many fraternity members have moved into neighboring houses and apartment complexes like where this fight broke out last month.

The two people who have been arrested will likely be charged with aggravated assault. Tempe PD is still looking for more people who may have been involved.
