Hollywood nightclub fight leaves man in critical condition
A man was in critical condition Sunday morning after a fight broke out among Halloween revelers on Hollywood Boulevard.
The brawl occurred as club-goers were leaving the Playhouse Hollywood nightclub on Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue about 1:30 a.m., said Sgt. Mark Ro of the LAPD's Hollywood station.
The fight involved two groups, Ro said. He said a crowd of club patrons, many in Halloween costumes, was looking on when a man fell to the ground and was kicked in the head several times until he was unconscious. The man was transported to a local hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition, Ro said.
Ro said three suspects kicked the victim, who was not identified. They could face charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
No suspects have been arrested. Ro said witnesses provided descriptions of them, but the victim's friends were uncooperative with police. It was unclear what triggered the fight.
