Another Gay Man Assaulted on the streets of West Hollywood:


On Wednesday evening, Oct. 19 at approximately 7:15 PM Kasey Mahaffy was brutally assaulted and gay bashed on Fountain near Laurel. This was the second incident in Weho in as many days. Following is Kasey’s story:

last night i took a walk down to the corner store to grab some beer and some snacks to bring home. i live in a safe, wonderful neighborhood. i'm a proud resident of west hollywood, ca - known as a safe haven for gays, lesbians, and all walks of humankind to live and reside in peace. as i was headed home from the store, i noticed a blue nissan versa slow down and pull up next to me. the passengers looked at me, then pulled into the driveway obstructing my short path home. the front passenger was completely inebriated (at 7:15 on wednesday - winner!), and started to spill out of the car and began squawking at me and shouting, "where you going with that beer?" i just kept on walking toward home, the vehicle sped off, and i thought nothing more of it.

i proceeded on my way, i was actually smiling. a beautiful night. headed home to my friends. i was happy.

then i noticed a guy walking towards me on the sidewalk - normal weho looking dude - in a black hoodie and cream plaid shorts. as he approached me i made eye contact, as i often do. he ripped back his hood, screamed something unintelligible, and punched me in the throat. 3 times. so much so that i landed in the middle of traffic on fountain ave. long story short i ended up inexplicable bent over a civilian's car, getting the shit beat out of me by a complete stranger. he hit my chest, my head, my ear, my cheek, my jaw. and since my arms were full of groceries, they were occupied and i couldn't defend myself. during the assault i kept thinking to myself all these ironic thoughts like , "oh my god. i can't believe this is happening. i'm a fucking HATE CRIME VICTIM?! no fucking way. not my story."

but then i came to and he had run off. gotten about 13 punches in. my groceries peppering fountain ave and my bottle of wine smashed on the hood of some innocent old corolla. "are you alright?" the driver asked. i picked up my groceries on the street. said yes, and that i think i was just assaulted. everyone nodded and sped off to wherever they were headed, and i was left alone.

i'm not going to get into the aftermath with the west hollywood sheriff and how they were totally insensitive - cavalier even - and told me there was "nothing they could do", then sped off. i had a fully detailed physical description of the car and the 4 abercrombie-clad frat boys inside. year. make. model. color. full physical description of the assailant. sorry, sir. bigger fish to fry tonight.

the reason i'm writing this is to A) clear up all details of what happened. let you know i am, in fact, okay and will be fine in just a few. i'm sore. i can't fucking swallow. my body hurts. but i have in no way suffered grave danger.


Kasey’s attacker is described as a white male, 6 ft to 6”2’, 180 lbs, light colored eyes, short or shaved dirty blond hair, wearing a black hoodie and cream plaid shorts, 25-28 yrs old. Anyone with details about the incident should call the West Hollywood Sheriff at (310) 855-8850.

P.S. The attacker seems to match the description of the gay-bashing on Tuesday night…

  1. He is so brave. It is only a few days since this happened and he jumped right into action, reaching many people with his story. I hope people spread the word and really start to fight this ... we can only stop this by teaching everyone we can that this MUST STOP. And by not turning a blind eye to *any* bullying, gay-hate speech or action. People, learn from this beautiful brave man - speak out and speak up

  3. its funny that in states with concealed weapons laws these things don't happen...its also funny that liberals continually oppose allowing us being protect our selves by being able to carry a gun....go OBAMA!

  4. The city of WeHo is very anti-gun, even if it would stop gays from beibg attacked. Gays needs to be perceived as victims and self-defense is not encouraged. (If City Council, Public Safety, or WeHo Sheriff have ever encouraged self defense, I've never seen it.)

  6. Why didn't anyone defend themselves? It it were me I would have dropped my groceries and kicked some hater ass... If I had my 9mm on me, they would be answering to a higher power. We have to start fighting back and not allowing ourselves to simply be victims.

  7. I was assaulted a few years back on a side street after leaving fubar. I was able to get a descripton of my assailants and their license plate number. I immediately went to the sheriff station and they wouldn't even write a report. When I was initially assaulted, I had an adrenaline rush and threw my attacker to the ground. When they realized I would fight back, they took off.

  14. My date and I (2 guys) were mugged at gunpoint by two black dudes 20 years ago on Hillside just north of Franklin just east of LaBrea. Not Weho, but Hollywood police drove me around looking for the perps. We all knew looking for them was like a needle in a haystack but they still tried. I've read about these crimes occurring for years in Weho and it always says the cops are totally not helpful, insensitive douchebags. WTF??????? I was in fucking ghetto Hollywood (well, 20 yrs ago it was) and they were totally awesome and helpful. What the hell is wrong with Weho cops?

  15. I'm not sure whether or not I appreciate promoting events in comments on these kinds of matters lol

  16. Guns just lead to more violence. Yes they can scare off an attacker, but they can also be taken from you, used on innocent bystanders, and bruises turn into deaths. Taser, pepper spray, good old fashioned hitting back...Maybe a group concerned with bullying should offer free self defense classes to victims or those targeted.

  17. yeah promoting here is tacky as fuck...good reason not to go to your show...messes...

  18. WeHo sheriff definitely gets praises left and right from other WeHo news reporting, but the reality is that they are really unhelpful sometimes. Other sites just need to stop sucking their dicks so they can continue reporting how they typically do without getting shit from the sheriff department. How can they not even attempt to do something when someone has all that info? BULLSHIT.

  20. This is bullshit. He needs to get an attorney and go after the Sheriff department for not responding to his incident. They are supposed to go looking and take a report. I fucking hate law enforcement. He needs to file a complaint with City Hall.

  21. > its funny that in states with concealed weapons laws these things don't happen

    really?! they have no crimes? most of the states with concealed weapons laws are in the middle of bumblefuck no where where no one lives.

    this is awful, but seriously, the gun-toting backwoods crap is garbage. carry pepper spray. there's no need for us to devolve into some redneck, hick. srsly, if you're carrying a gun, gtfo out of our city if you hate our liberal ways so much. seriously, no one will miss you...

  22. WEHO Sheriffs are a joke...NONE of them are from West Hollywood and they could really give a damn.

    God forbid if it were two guys kissing in a car! Then you'd REALLY get a response from them!!!!!!

    West Hollywood needs it OWN Police Department...every other city our size is twice as safe because they patrol their own streets with THEIR Police.

    The Sheriffs here need to be sent packing!

  25. I'd suggest Billy and Casey go into the West Hollywood Sheriffs' office and file an official report. I can't imagine a desk personnel not having the time to do the paperwork. If they still refuse, ask to file a complaint against the sheriff department. And be sure to bring a crowd of friends with you. Be well...

    Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 - "Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force" is just an excerpt.

  26. I was also attacked in that area by a gay guy who was drunk, whom I had met via a friend, he punched me in between the eyes and ran off. I'm a straight female. Gave full description with his address to the sheriff's (your description sounds very similar to mine) and my case is still pending. Every time I see myself in the mirror and see the scar, I see his face. I believe in Karma and I just hope it comes back to him 10x.

  27. So sorry to hear this. I know Kasey from Bones and he is a great actor. This shouldn't be happening to anybody. This bullies should be punished more severe for random hate crimes, weather gay bashing, racial differences, or ANYTHING else. These gangs who just go around and bully people should be thrown to jail a year per assault IMO, maybe it would stip then.
    As for Kasey, I hope he gets ok soon and that we see him on tv again:)
