OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Police have arrested two suspects accused of severely beating a man outside an Oklahoma City club Sunday.

Gregory Risenhoover and Phillip Ooton have been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of aggravated assault and battery against Jeff Martin of Yukon.

Police said the beating happened about 1 a.m. outside of Big Dick's Roadhouse at 501 N. Mustang Road. 

Martin's fiancée said she and the victim had left the club and gone to their car. She got into the car, and Martin then walked toward two men. She said all three men started fighting and her fiancée was knocked to the ground.

Martin's fiancee told police she tried to stop the fight but one of the men threw her against a car.

Another witness who left the bar with her husband at the time of the altercation reported seeing one of the suspects jumping up and down on Martin's face. She said the two suspects then ran to a truck with a red and white tail gate, got in and drove off. 

It's not known what started the fight.

Martin was taken to OU Health Sciences Center where he remains in critical condition.

Both Risenhoover and Ooton are out of jail on bond.
