Group beats up man in parking lot

A 22-year-year-old North Hollywood man suffered minor stab wounds

after being assaulted by a group of five men in a parking lot at 259

E. Palm Ave.

The incident happened Wednesday morning while the man was waiting


for a ride in the parking structure behind Gitana.

The group of men punched and kicked the man, apparently thinking

he was a gang member, Police Sgt. John Dilibert said.

The victim was able to run away.


Police were not sure if the cuts to the man’s arms were from a

broken beer bottle or a knife.

The man was treated at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center and

released, Dilibert said.
