Couple hit with bottles in bar fight

A man and a woman were hit with bottles during a barroom brawl in downtown Mountain View early Saturday morning, police said.

Neither of the victims were directly involved in the fight, which broke out shortly after midnight on July 30 at the Monte Carlo Club at 228 Castro St., according to Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department.

The 22-year-old man and 21-year-old woman -- both from Salinas -- were hit with bottles, and each suffered cuts as a result.

The man, who did not recall being struck or see his attacker, was hit in the back of the head with a bottle, which shattered, Wylie said. He had a laceration on his head but declined a trip to the hospital.

The woman was hit in the face with a bottle, which caused a 2-inch cut that required stitches. She identified the man who threw the bottle at her as a 5-foot-7-inch Hispanic man in his late 20s, dressed in a black shirt and blue jeans.

Police have no witnesses or suspects, Wylie said.

Apostrophes are an advanced concept.

Convert this rat hole club back to a movie theater or Blue's Venue.

You know things aren't good when you don't need to even read the article to know which bar this was...

Can we get some sort of special city restrictions on where and how these alcohol dispensaries can operate? They are plagued with violence, now involving innocent people who just happen to be in the way.
This time it was bottles, next time it may be bullets.
The city council was very proactive about restrictions on cannabis dispensaries (which have factually shown to not increase crime, 20 yrs and counting)why no discussions on the dispensaries which have PROVEN to increase crime in the area...violent crime at that.
The abundantly clear hypocrisy would be laughable if it were not so sad.

Please CLOSE Monte Carlo Night Club. This place attracts dangerous people.

not defending them but also don't stereotype them either just because they cater to the latin community which is right now becoming more dominant in mtn view. same things happen in other mainstream bars but yet nobody talks about it as much. They take their job seriously there to have these things NOT happend but every so now and then some thing will go wrong it's called Murphy's law!

22,000 people show up for a country music concert in Mountain View and no one gets stabbed or shot.

100 people show up at Monte Carlo and there is violence. Ditto for anytime there is a rap concert for more than 3 people. Why? Seriously, why?

@Downtown Guest - "Murphy's Law" is a bar in Sunnyvale with Black and White patrons with live Jazz on Monday nights. There is no racism. There is no violence.

Venues that play rap or Latin music attract violent people. If you look at the police reports for the Monte Carlo or other problem venues in Mountain View, you will see that most of the trouble makers come from EPA or other areas outside Mountain View.

@Al-where is there a possessive in there that needs an apostrophe? I might have missed it, but I see only plurals (not "plural's"). But as I say, I might have missed it, I just scanned it quickly.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
