Two Carpentersville men are accused of jumping another man outside a party early Sunday morning, kicking him while he was on the ground and breaking his nose, according to police and Kane County court records.

Daniel Mora, 23, of the 100 block of Austin Avenue, and Jose A. Mora-Aguilar, 26, of the 200 block of Ensenada Avenue, face felony charges of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and mob action, both felonies.

They were arrested shortly after Carpentersville police were called to the 500 block of Tyler Drive at about 5:36 a.m. Sunday, according to a police report.

Carpentersville Police Cmdr. Erman Blevins could not specify if the men were related.

When police arrived, they found the bloodied 30-year-old victim, who told officers he was attacked by the Moras, who had fled the scene.

The Moras were arrested on the 0-99 block of Kennedy Drive and later identified by the victim, who was treated and released from Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin for a broken nose, police said.

The man told police he was at his brother-in-law's party when the Moras arrived. The victim had fought with the Moras in the past, but they seemed to get along that night until Daniel Mora put his arm around the victim's neck as they stood outside near a garage.

"Daniel was telling him everything was good but then began to punch him in the face," the police report said. "(The victim) attempted to fight back but Jose jumped in and he was getting beat by both Moras. The punched him with their fists and kicked and stomped him with their feet. He fell into a fetal position to protect himself as they continued to beat him on the ground."

A witness broke up the fight and told the Moras to leave, the report said. Jose Mora later told police that the victim took a swing at him instead and they fought to defend themselves, the report said.

Mora and Mora-Aguilar are free on bond and are due in court July 30.

Daniel Mora was previously cited for transportation of open alcohol by a passenger in May 2014 in Elgin but has failed to pay the $155 fine, records show.

If convicted of the most serious offense, they face anywhere from probation to five years in prison.
