A female witness reported seeing a man arguing with the victim inside the bar about a game of pool, while a second woman said she saw the man on the ground in the patio area with the bench on top of him. Ryburn said it was unclear how many people were involved.
“The victim suffered multiple fractures to his face,” Ryburn said, adding that the victim said he could not recall the incident.
The bar has a history of noise complaints, Ryburn said, saying police have received multiple calls from neighbors.
[Updated Aug. 7: Burbank police say 29-year-old Simi Valley resident Jose Ramon Coronado was arrested in connection with the assault. He has since posted $30,000 bail, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.]
