Men, juvenile, beaten in unprovoked attacks in Pasadena

PASADENA — Three men and a juvenile suffered minor injuries when they were the victims of two separate unprovoked attacks by large groups late Friday and early Saturday.
Both assaults were carried out by groups of more than 10 young Latino men and were separated by about half a mile and less than two hours, though there was no evidence Saturday that the incidents were connected, Pasadena police Lt. Chris Russ said.
“Nothing indicated they’re related,” he said.
The first of the two attacks was reported just before 10 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of North Summit Avenue, the lieutenant said.
An 18-year-old man was standing in a residential neighborhood when he was approached by 10-15 Latino men between 15 and 18 years old, armed with a glass bottle and a baseball bat, who attacked him without provocation, Russ said.
The victim suffered a cut above his eye and swelling to his face, he added.
Just after midnight, police said, a group of two young men, 18 and 19 years old, and one juvenile were attacked by group of young men for no apparent reason.
The victims were walking near Los Robles Avenue and Orange Grove Boulevard when they were approached by 11-12 Latino men between 18 and 20 years old who were riding bicycles, Russ said.
“The group began yelling at the victims,” he said. “The suspects attacked without provocation.”
The 19-year-old victim suffered a cut to the top of his hand in the incident, he added.
No arrests were made in either attack.
