Man injured in unprovoked attack in Pasadena

PASADENA — A young man reported he was attacked without provocation by two assailants while walking in Pasadena early Friday, police said.
The victim was beaten and attacked with a bottle just after midnight at Washington Boulevard and El Molino Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said. He was taken to a hospital with cuts, though the injuries did not appear major.
Clawson said the 19-year-old Pasadena resident was approached by two attackers wearing baseball caps, one of whom carried a bottle. A more detailed description was not available, and no vehicle was reported in connection with the crime.
“The suspects assaulted him without provocation,” the lieutenant said.
At one point, one of the assailants swung the bottle at the victim, Clawson said. He blocked the bottle with his hand, causing a cut. He also suffered cuts to his face during the attack.
The injured man notified sheriff’s deputies in nearby Altadena of the attack about two hours later, Clawson said. Deputies turned the investigation over to Pasadena police once it was determined the crime took place within their jurisdiction.
