Laundromat owner beaten by women with a broomstick. A laundromat owner who was beaten by a couple using a metal broomstick three weeks ago, spoke out Saturday about his ordeal and the attack.
Carl Swanson talked about the attack that was captured on security video inside and outside the Los Feliz establishment he owns with his wife, Kerry. The fight, in fact, was captured from two angles.
The fight was two on one, with a man and a woman attacking Swanson. The fight moved outside where the woman is shown striking Swanson with the broomstick.
“Saying she was gonna mess me up,” says Swanson.
When it was all over, he was messed up. And three weeks later, he’s still nursing his wounds.“Not only was she fighting me,” Swanson says, “she bit me.” He showed the teeth marks on his back to Mills, still visible.
What precipitated the fight? Swanson says, “because we kicked her out before.”
He said he had a physical confrontation with the woman prior to this one.
The latest fight happened around 6 a.m. on a Sunday at Hillhurst Plaza at Hillhurst and Melbourne.
Business owners and residents in the area told Mills the area is dangerous between 5:30 and 10 a.m. most days but especially on weekends.
