Halloween on Ocean Beach’s Newport Avenue produced a woman getting her cheek bitten and a man lying unconscious on the sidewalk.
In the cheek incident, Steve Perez said he and his girlfriend were enjoying the night out at Cheswick’s on Newport Avenue when a stranger came up and bit her on the cheek before running off. They called 911 and the suspect was apprehended and arrested.
The victim didn't seem to have a serious injury and declined medical attention. She opted to press charges against the assailant.
In another incident, a man dressed in a bikini, knee-high socks, and high heels was pushed to the ground and lost consciousness in front of Newport Pizza. A patron at the pizza joint told police and emergency medical personnel that she saw the scuffle and heard the victim’s head hit the ground. She did not see who pushed him.
The swimsuited man was seen earlier in the day at the OB Farmer's Market walking around in his costume. He was wheeled away to an ambulance while still unconscious.
