Average-Looking Scumbags

At 7:30 p.m. on October 3, local rapper Brendan B was on his way home from a Newport Avenue bar in Ocean Beach.

"I was cutting through an alley, and two guys came out of nowhere, approached me and stabbed me and ran," he says. The assailants, who had been walking behind him, instigated the attack by calling him "bitch" and "fag," among other names.

"I should have just kept walking and ignored them, but I was curious as to why they were saying this to me, so I stood there and waited for them and then they walked up and stabbed me. They didn't push me; there were no punches thrown or anything."

The knife cut into the left side of B's torso, below his ribcage. He chased the two until he realized the seriousness of his injury. A male and female found B bleeding and called an ambulance.

"I get to the hospital, and right when I get there it's like a scene from E.R.; there's 15 people working on me and right away I go into surgery and the doctor tells me that he doesn't know how serious it is. He tells me that if I wake up with a big cut down from my chest to my belly button it was pretty serious, but if I wake up and it was just, like, three incisions it wasn't as serious." He woke up with the three incisions.

"The blade went in about two and a half inches, and [the doctors told me] it just barely missed my intestines and my organs." B was in the hospital for two days and may miss up to five weeks of work. He anticipates medical bills of at least $10,000. He does not have health insurance.

The two assailants were "average-looking kids...scumbags": two white males in their late teens to early 20s, both with short dark hair; the one that stabbed him was approximately 5'10", kind of skinny (about 160 pounds), and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.

Brendan B will appear at 710 Beach Club (formerly Blind Melons) in Pacific Beach on November 1.
