Man beaten, robbed outside Mountain View club

Police hunt for suspects in early-morning assault outside Monte Carlo Night Club

A group of men beat and robbed a Sunnyvale man as he left the Monte Carlo Night Club in Mountain View with his girlfriend at about 2 a.m. Monday (Aug. 1), police said.

The 26-year-old victim, along with his 22-year-old San Jose girlfriend, were in the parking lot behind the bar after last call when they were approached by about five men, Wylie said.

The group of men reportedly started punching and kicking the victim, stealing his watch and gold necklace in the process, Wylie said. The man suffered bruising and scratches on his face.

The woman was not beaten or robbed, but she did suffer scratches on her knees from attempting to help her boyfriend, Wylie said.

After the robbery, the victim drove himself to the hospital, Wylie said. Neither the victim nor his girlfriend were able to give officers much of a description of their robbers, and they weren't even sure how many men attacked them, she said.

As the price of gold excels into outer space (now over $1650), it would be wise to keep your jewelry at home and not to let it glitter into the watchful eyes of strangers, especially when alone. Ladies, you are not immune when wearing a huge wedding ring either. Too bad, but guess you can always keep your left hand in your pocket. Special times for that special jewelry to be flaunted. Stay safe.
Do not tempt and tease those who may be on the edge..

It just infuriates me to read about these kinds of stories.

Animals seems to live among us and have taken over, both at the top and the bottom rung or society, and for things like this our cops need to be really tough and on the job. 2am is when the bars let out and in Mountain View that means a lot of sleazebags walking the streets, most of them not even from Mountain View. It cannot be that hard to patrol the parking lots in downtown MV at this time.

I think they ought to close those dump bars anyway, they are flithy and it is a major pain in the ass just to have to walk by them on the sidewalk. Same thing in San Jose at night. Sometimes same in Palo Alto. We better start paying attention to these thugs, this is not so different from Bagdhad, perpetrating violence on the public is easy .... read the last few months news.

If they want to have bars, they should make everyone there register as a member and check in and out and then keep people off the street in the early morning, or ask them their business.

Just today on the news a guy was robbed at gunpoint on California St in MV just going inside his home where kids where in the place. This is getting way out of control now ... and what can we promise these people that get caught ... that they get released very soon. Unbelievable.
