BOSTON (AP) — A second video that shows Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor fighting outside a Boston nightclub last week has prompted Boston police to urge anyone who was assaulted to come forward.

In an initial video posted by TMZ last week, Okafor is seen shoving a man. After TMZ posted a second video showing Okafor shouting and a man lying on the sidewalk bleeding from his face, a spokeswoman for Boston police said Wednesday they are urging “anyone else to come forward if they were assaulted.”

On Friday, one man filed a police report saying he was punched and knocked to the ground, and needed stitches to close a cut above his eye.

The 19-year-old rookie says he is embarrassed about the incident and is dealing with the team and the NBA on possible discipline.
