Assailant beats man with stick, flees

An unknown assailant beat a 26-year-old Mountain View man with a wooden stick on the night of May 6, in a Castro Street parking lot, police say.

The assailant rushed towards the victim as he was getting into his car behind Sonica Music Company at 260 Castro Street at 10:26 p.m., Mountain View Police Department spokeswoman Liz Wylie said. The assailant's face was covered, she said.

The assailant hit the victim with the stick once and punched him immediately afterward, Wylie said. The victim fell out of his car after being struck and the assailant fled on foot down Bryant Street without taking anything, she said.

Several bystanders witnessed the attack, Wylie said — one of whom called 911. Police were unable to locate the assailant after the attack.

The victim received minor injuries, Wylie said. He was transported to a nearby hospital but was released without receiving treatment, she said.

Wylie described the suspect as roughly 6 feet tall and of medium build.
