The victim is a well-known performer on the Boardwalk. He was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown at this time. 

This is the second major assault in less than a week in Venice. 

A security guard was severely beaten by a person experiencing homeless last Thursday. The attack happened in the parking lot of Arbor Collective, located at 102 Washington Blvd, according to the business owner Bob Carlson.

Carlson said his guard, "T", who is well-loved by employees and the community, was asking a person experiencing homelessness to leave the company parking lot after observing they were under the influence. The homeless person then took a bottle and hit "T" over his head, breaking the bottle and stabbing him multiple times, according to Carlson.

T was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for wounds to his head, hands and torso. The suspect in the attack was arrested.

If you have details about the boardwalk attack call LAPD.
