A Burbank man, age 22, was assaulted by an unknown female as he walked in his neighborhood on the 4400 block of Kling St. at 2:00 a.m., Friday, May 2. He awoke in the bushes near his apartment building around 3:00 p.m. that day.
When the victim returned to his apartment at 3:00 p.m., he discovered he had facial injuries including two missing front teeth and a cut and swollen lip. The victim called paramedics and police responded as well. at 3:09 p.m.
The victim “was walking down the street having a cigarette in the early morning when an unknown female walked up from his left,” explained Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department. “The victim only described the suspect as a female wearing a black visor cap.”
“Suddenly, the female struck him in the face with an unknown blunt object to his face area,” continued Ryburn. “The impact knocked the victim unconscious and stated he could not remember what happened after the assault.”
The victim still had his wallet, keys and cell phone when he awoke, so police believe robbery was not the motive. The incident continues to be investigated.
Police ask for anyone who may have been in the area during that time frame to call the police at 818-238-3210.
