MONTEREY PARK >> A woman was struck in the head with a beer bottle during an attack as she and a man walked down a street in Monterey Park, police said.
The assault with a deadly weapon took place just after 3 p.m. as a man and woman in their 20s were walking in the 2000 block of Bleakwood Avenue, near East Los Angeles College, Monterey Park police Lt. Eric Kim said.
They were approached by four suspects, and became involved in an argument over an unknown subject, the lieutenant said.
“The female was struck with a beer bottle,” according to Kim. She suffered a small cut to her head but declined to be taken to a hospital. The man who accompanied the woman was not injured.
A detailed description of the suspects was not available, and the motive in the attack was unclear.
