Man is repeatedly kicked in head outside Glendale bar, police say

A Glendale resident was arrested Monday on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly kicked a 39-year-old man's head multiple times outside Dave's bar, police said.

The injured man, whose name wasn't released, remained hospitalized Tuesday at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was being treated for blunt force trauma to the head and face, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. The man's medical condition was not immediately available, Lorenz added.

The victim, who lives in La Crescenta, was lying unconscious on the sidewalk when officers arrived at the bar near the corner of East Broadway and Glendale Avenue, police said.

Bystanders were able to restrain 41-year-old Donovan Emsworth, whom police later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Witnesses reported seeing Emsworth yell at the victim, punch him twice, knock him to the ground and stomp on his head multiple times, police said.

Emsworth, who has been convicted of various driving violations, also faces charges of assault, battery and violating a restraining order stemming from a July 2012 incident, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.

He is being held at the city's jail in lieu of $556,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department booking records.
