Homeless man sent to hospital after attack outside Burbank library

A 41-year-old Sun Valley man was arrested Friday after he allegedly kicked a transient man in the head, police said.

The man, Fermin Casillas, was taken into custody about 3:52 p.m. on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon as he was fleeing the scene of the alleged attack, Burbank police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.

The 41-year-old transient man was taken to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition after being treated for a cut above his right eye, Ryburn added.

Police found the man unconscious and bleeding from his head after the assault, which occurred outside the Burbank Central Library in the 100 block of North Glenoaks Boulevard.


The pair was allegedly drinking before the attack ensued.

Witnesses reported seeing Casillas kick the man in the head and then flee the area on foot to a nearby gas station, Ryburn said.

Casillas remained in custody Tuesday in lieu of $30,000 bail.
