GayborHood Watch: Gay Tourist Violently Robbed in Weho


:::UPDATE:::

A few weeks ago we told you about "John Doe's" experience with a violent robbery at Santa Monica Blvd and Robertson. His excerpted story, in his words, is after the jump. 

We have since learned, however, that the details of the incident are even more terrifying than previously thought. According to the police report, witnesses described two black males approach John as if to assist him, then punch him in the head, knocking him to the ground. 

One suspect began emptying John's pockets, while the other kicked him repeatedly. The police report classifies the incident as a "Strong-arm robbery" and "Assault with a deadly weapon (great bodily injury)". The on-scene pictures of John's face are too graphic to show, but we can see why he required 30 stitches. 

After beating and robbing John, the suspects ran to their nearby car and drove off. The police report states that a witness observed one of the suspects shout "Hollywood Crip!" as they drove off. Two other places in the police report also describe a witness overhearing the suspects use terminology consistent with gang language.

John reports that he is still healing, physically and emotionally, but still has no recollection of the event.  "I know I'm totally lucky - everyone keeps saying 'I can't believe how well you're taking this' but really that's why,"  John told us when asked how he feels now.

As for the suspects, they are still at large. The detective on the case went on a two-week vacation, and after numerous calls to the station a second detective was finally assigned to the case. John was promised an update in "one or two weeks". 

Are we really living in a safe city?



A man (who we will call John Doe) was violently robbed by two black dudes early last Monday morning across from Motherlode. Following is John's firsthand account of what happened. We have excerpted his story.

"This past Sunday night I was at a couple of different spots on Santa Monica. I left Motherlode as they were getting ready to lock up, and went on my way, saying goodbye to the bartender and his bf as I left. Literally, the next thing I remember is waking up in Cedars-Sinai.

Apparently shortly after I left, I was hit over the head and knocked unconscious on the corner of Santa Monica and Robertson outside the Chase Bank on the corner. While I was out, the assailants (whom I never saw nor heard approach) emptied my pockets, including my wallet, cash, and iPhone, and took my Movado watch off my wrist.....I was left with just the keys to my rental car.

According to a deputy I spoke to, a WeHo police officer found me lying unconscious in a pool of my own blood on the sidewalk. [The deputy] apparently spoke with [witnesses who] described the assailants as two black males.

At the end of the day, I wound up with approximately $2,500-2,600 worth of stolen goods, 28 stitches holding a nasty gash in my forehead closed, and a concussion that I'm still feeling the effects of :-/."

We remind everyone to remain vigilant while you are partying and remember that you are your own first line of defense. Stay with your friends when possible and keep valuables out of view. Our thoughts are with John as he recovers.

  1. Just wondering...how do they know it was "2 black dudes" if no one saw it happen? Are they on camera or something?

  3. It's too bad this happened, though the story has a lot of HOLES in it. It will be interesting to see what the investigation uncovers.

  13. Why didn't the "witnesses" step in to help? This town is full of a bunch of pussies. They all can talk and pretend they are tough then they crumble like fraile women fr the 50s. You try to go to the gym all the time to get muscles, use them for once!

  20. Well them ban the Mexicans, two of them, a man and woman robbed a store in West Hollywood and ban the rapists, several of them white, hispanic and black males are all over the area. If you banned every race that committed a crime then there wouldn't be anything left in WeHo except dogs and cats.
