Man is at­tacked with ma­chete

Los Angeles Times - - THE STATE - — Kim Christensen

A 43- year- old man suf­fered se­ri­ous wounds early Sun­day when one of four would- be rob­bers at­tacked him with a ma­chete while try­ing to steal his bi­cy­cle, Los An­ge­les po­lice said.

The man was rid­ing his bike about 12: 30 a. m. when four men emerged from a green sedan and at­tacked him near the in­ter­sec­tion of West 12th Street and South Burling­ton Av­enue, said Of­fi­cer Lil­iana Pre­ci­ado.

“Af­ter he was at­tacked with the ma­chete, the sus­pects got back in the ve­hi­cle and left the scene,” she said.

The vic­tim, whose iden­tity was not re­leased, ran a cou­ple of blocks to the in­ter­sec­tion of 11th and Burling­ton, where paramedics found him with se­ri­ous lac­er­a­tions, Pre­ci­ado said.

The vic­tim was taken to a hos­pi­tal for treat­ment, and is ex­pected to re­cover, she said.

No ar­rests had been made.
