SAN DIEGO — A 41-year-old man was jumped by five men Friday in a parking lot in Petco Park, suffering a blood clot on the back of his head.
The victim declined medical treatment, said Sgt. Michael Tansey of the San Diego Police Department.
The attack occurred at 7:22 p.m. in the 100 block of Park Boulevard.
The man was walking through the parking lot with a female companion when the group of men attempted to talk to the woman as they passed by, Tansey said.
The pair ignored the group and moments later, the victim was struck in the back of the head with a glass bottle thrown by one of the men before that suspect punched and kicked the victim, Tansey said.
The victim fell to the ground and was beaten by the rest of the men, who repeatedly kicked the man in the head and upper body, Tansey said.
The suspects scattered when the woman who was with the victim called the police. They were last seen crossing the pedestrian bridge from 100 Park Blvd. to Harbor Drive.
The suspect who attacked the man with the bottle was described as 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 5 inches, 120 to 130 pounds, with short black hair, Tansey said. He was wearing a white T-shirt and khaki pants.
The remainder of the group were described as being in their early 20s, and between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches.
