According to an internal Anaheim Police Department report obtained by the Weekly, officers responded on February 5, 2013 to an assault at a Shell Station near Disneyland. Upon arrival the victim was found laying down with bloody trauma to his face and head, injuries sustained after a ruthless series of kicks and stomps caught by a security camera. “The report was generated as a result of an attempted homicide investigation in which a Hispanic male was severely beaten and rendered unconscious,” Public Information Officer Sergeant Bob Dunn says, confirming the content of our report. “He was unable to provide information on his identity or give us contact information for his family.” Whenever that’s the case, the victim is usually, universally noted in law enforcement reports as ‘John/Jane Doe’ depending on gender. Not the Anaheim officer in this case: he wrote up the victim in the February assault as ‘Juan Doe.’
