A man whose assault in WeHo’s Boystown on Sunday night sent him to the hospital has been identified as Kirk Doffing, a resident of North San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood.
Capt. Gary Honings of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station told the West Hollywood City Council tonight that Doffing is in a medically induced coma at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Doffing was assaulted around 9 p.m. near the intersection of Santa Monica and San Vicente boulevards by one of a group of three to four Hispanic men, Honings said. Honings said one of the men was wearing a trench coat, unusual attire for a warm night out in West Hollywood and distinctive enough that some people out that night might have information about the assailant. The assault of Doffing on Sunday was one of two and possibly three incidents in the area, where residents have complained about others in the past few months.
Honings asked that anyone with information about the assailants contact the Sheriff’s Station’s watch commander and Detective Berbiar at (310) 855-8850.
