Man injured in attack at bar

A man injured in a bar brawl said he doesn't know why he was attacked by two other patrons at the King of Clubs on Leong Drive after midnight on April 24.

The victim, a 40-year-old man from San Jose, told police that he stepped outside the bar, and when he returned, two men jumped up from a table and started punching him, said Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. The victim said he did not know the suspects.

The man suffered a broken facial bone, and reported the incident to police after he was treated at the hospital, Wylie said.

Bar security broke up the fight and kicked out the two suspects. The incident was referred to police detectives for investigation, Wylie said.

Teen girl attacked, injured at Whisman Park

A 14-year-old girl suffered a concussion after she was struck by another teenager at Whisman Park on April 23, Mountain View police said.

The victim, who was at the park around 6 p.m. with two male friends, said a teenage girl walked up to her, grabbed her hair and threw her to the ground, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. The victim said she hit her head on the cement and lost consciousness.

A police officer passing by a short time later noticed something amiss, and spoke with the victim, but she said everything was fine, Wylie said. Later that evening, the victim's mother brought her to the police station to report the incident, Wylie said. The girl said she did not know her attacker.

The suspect is described as a 16- or 17-year old Hispanic girl of medium height and heavy build.
