Two employees of Mickys, the West Hollywood gay bar and lounge, were assaulted early this morning on Palm Avenue as they walked home from work.
According to Sgt. Richard Bowman of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, four Hispanic men approached one of the young men in an apparent attempt to rob him. The other young man was assaulted when he intervened to try to help his friend. One of the young men was stabbed. Neither of the men suffered life-threatening injuries, Bowman said.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. on Palm just north of Santa Monica Boulevard. To date the Sheriff’s Station has been unable to identify the assailants.
Acquaintances of the men who were assaulted identified them as boyfriends, with one working as a bartender and another as a barback at Micky’s.
