Homeless man injures woman on Crescent Heights x Melrose

ADVERTISEMENT

A woman walking her dog near the intersection of Crescent Heights and Melrose was viciously attacked by a suspect believed to be homeless.

In a post on Nextdoor, the woman describes the June 24 incident in which a suspect she describes as a 6-foot-tall black male wearing no shirt attacked her from behind, leaving her with a black eye and several lacerations. Surveillance footage obtained by the victim from a business nearby confirms her description.

The woman expressed frustration with trying to report the crime and noted that only two people stopped to help her.

Vote Far Left, live with the consequences. Police enforcement and laws have a place in a civilised society. WH and LA lack both.

The picture of the guy is pretty blurry but he looks like a guy that tried attacking a girl outside the West Hollywood Library a few months back. He charged at me and punched me in the chest when I started yelling at him to stop and leave her alone. There should be a police report from when the WeHo police came out to look for him.

Dear BeHi,

Can we please borrow yours, or Santa Monica’s extremely qualified police chief. We would also like to borrow 50-60 real police officers.

We can trade one experienced sign collector and 100 mall cops.

Desperately
WeNeedHelpHo

Love this silly little town but they forgot to finish building it. WeHo might have a big party once a year and tout selected rights; but forgot actual things like having police, qualified city management, and an actual competent council.

Help us Beverly!
Help us Monica!

By all means, pour your resources into a bike lane on Fountain. I never wish bad on anyone but inevitably a council member or city staff will be a victim, which will miraculously lead to action and hiring more police. In the meantime, they are letting us eat cake while they make sure all their little pet projects get pushed through.

Just wait until Metro builds a stop in West Hollywood to see assaults and robbery attempts skyrocket. Just ask the residents of Santa Monica.

Horvath is dead set on getting the Metro to West Hollywood.
Remember this come her re-election.

While I like to see the metro expanded, I too believe crime will skyrocket once the metro is built and stop are in West Hollywood. Too easy for criminals to get in and get out quickly. The only thing that will curtail this would be a beefed up police presence and we all know that the “leaders” in LA city and West Hollywood are anti-police.

Makes me want to vote for her even more!

And I have several close friends who live in Santa Monica/West LA area. They have loved having the expo line the past 8 years. They frequently take it downtown for concerts and events.

It’s amazing how people will lobby against bike lanes, bus lanes, subways, light-rail etc and the continue to complain about traffic. Stop the madness.

Your “several close friends” are in the minority of Santa Monica/ West LA area residents. The majority wish for life to return to the days when the crime was lower before the Metro.

… except for the voting for Horvath part! Only the stuff about the Metro.

Nah! We don’t wanna vote for Horvath!

When is this ever going to stop? When will local politicians and law enforcement protect us from this b.s.?

So long as people keep voting for the same way…for the same mindset, for the same failed policies, this will only continue and get worse.

I’m afraid you’re right. It’s unbelievable. No matter how bad things get they refuse to accept that the polices that have been put in place are not producing the results that had hoped for. Slow learners I guess. Unfortunately for the rest of us, we have to suffer through until enough of them wake up and vote differently.

Why are so many Black men coming to West Hollywood to attack residents? The cowards seem to prefer women victims. It’s unfortunate, but I am on the alert for other predators.

The local parks primarily host music events aimed only at niche demographics, and avoiding discussions about crime, mutual respect, and community unity is largely due to some liberals’ reluctance to tackle challenging subjects, resulting in an overly idealistic approach that overlooks real issues. Also, consequences for crimes in the state have been diminished, and there’s a bleeding-heart vibe that fails to recognize when things aren’t always rainbows and pink triangles.

It’s not profiling. It’s probability!
