    Man Found with Severe Head Injury Outside West Hollywood Bars

    Gloria Jimenez tells WEHO TIMES that her family is unclear about what happened to her 54-year-old brother, Albert Vasquez, who was found near two local West Hollywood bars with a severe head injury. He was discovered last Friday night, on April 5, 2024, in a parking lot on Santa Monica Boulevard.

    “All the information we have is that it occurred near two local West Hollywood bars, Heart WeHo and another one named Gym Bar. I guess they’re both close together. All we know is that he was struck by something on the head. He was found in the parking lot by a bystander who was walking by and who called the emergency crew to come out and pick him up. They brought him to Cedars.”

    According to Ms. Jimenez, the last time someone spoke to Albert was at 7:45 p.m. The family does not know when he sustained his injuries or at what time he was picked up and rushed to the hospital. They were not notified until the following Tuesday, after a friend called Albert’s phone and a nurse answered the call.

    A GoFundMe campaign alleges that Albert was brutally assaulted by an unknown person or persons and was left bleeding and unconscious with a cracked skull in a bar parking lot in West Hollywood. “We do not know if he was randomly attacked by a stranger in what could be a homophobic or racist hate crime, or if he was attacked by someone he interacted with at one of the bars.”

    However, authorities have not yet determined if his injuries were the result of an attack or if Albert fell and injured himself.

    Gloria says he has a long road to recovery. Albert has suffered brain swelling, and they had to remove bone fragments. He’s been in the hospital in critical condition for a week. He is expected to survive, but he will need multiple surgeries and could have possible brain damage.

    “He’s a harmless person and was just enjoying his Friday evening,” Gloria said of her brother. “He would never hurt anyone. We are all shocked that this has happened to him. He’s the baby of the family, and his entire family is just shocked by it all. This is something we never thought would happen. He’s an independent guy, and that’s why we thought he was just out and about, you know, until we got that call on Tuesday.”

    The family has filed a report with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to West Hollywood Deputy Franklin at (310) 855-8850.

    This is tragic and scary. It is hard to believe this was not a gay bashing. You would have to be pretty intoxicated to fall and receive these sorts of injuries, which appear to be intentional.
