Suspect sought in attack

Police were searching Tuesday evening for a man who allegedly inflicted serious injuries on a Culver City councilman during an early morning attack.

Councilman Mehaul O'Leary was assaulted with a deadly weapon about 2 a.m. Sunday at Joxer Daly's Pub, which he owns, police said. The bar is at Washington and Sepulveda boulevards near the city's trendy downtown area.

"His injuries were considered serious," said Capt. Dave Tankenson of the Culver City Police Department.

O'Leary was taken to a local hospital. Police did not release details on his current condition other than to say he was still in the hospital Tuesday evening.

Tankenson identified the suspect as Robert Anthony Singerman, 28, of Los Angeles. Police have issued a warrant for his arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (310) 253-6202.
