The man who was assaulted by Jahlil Okafor says the NBA star is not telling the truth about being heckled. The unnamed victim claims Okafor only got violent after he was rejected by two women on a street in Boston.

Boston officials who are “actively investigating the incident” say the male victim filed a police report Friday morning, indicating Okafor brutally hit him in the face, causing a laceration above his eye that required stitches.

The victim also says Okafor’s allegations that he was swarmed by hecklers outside of Storyville nightclub is pure garbage. The truth, according to the victim, is that Okafor approached two girls that were hanging with the victim and tried to get their numbers. The girls weren’t interested, and shot Okafor down. The victim claims a verbal altercation ensued … and Okafor became unhinged, eventually rushing at him and punching him in the face/ h/t tmz

As for now Okafor is standing by his version of the story — That he reacted over feeling “threatened by hecklers.”
