Police have released little information about an alleged beating that took place in Old Town Temecula in the early morning hours of Dec. 1.
The attack on a 20-year-old male by three suspects allegedly took place at 12:45 a.m. after the victim had been at a country western bar known as the Stampede on Front Street in Old Town.
Little information is available, however, because the victim said he lost consciousness and police have not been able to obtain solid descriptions of the alleged attackers.
"The victim was in the Old Town area when he was approached by three possible suspects -- no solid description at this time," said Sgt. Lisa McConnell of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
"It appears there was some type of altercation between the parties," the sergeant continued. "The victim stated he lost consciousness and once he regained it he was able to flag down a CDF [Cal Fire] crew that was in the area on an unrelated call. The victim stated that his property was missing upon gaining consciousness."
The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and intoxication and was eventually released to his mother, McConnell said.
In Facebook posts, the victim, who Patch is not identifying, said he was robbed at gunpoint by three black males. The victim said he was beaten with a steel pipe. He required 25 staples in his head and his front teeth got knocked out, he posted.
McConnell said the investigation is ongoing.
