Man arrested for brutal attack on woman in Hollywood parking lot

Authorities arrested a man who was wanted in connection with a brutal attack on a woman in a parking lot in Hollywood Wednesday.

The initial scene occurred early Friday morning around 2:15 a.m. in a multi-storey parking lot in the 1700 block of North Las Palmas Avenue, when the man attacked a 26-year-old woman who was celebrating her birthday at the Revel Lounge.



According to the woman, Cynthia Stergious, she and her friends were approached by two men once they entered the garage where “words were exchanged” before her friend was punched in the head. That’s when they turned on her and started insulting her. Stergious said his mind went blank soon after.


Video from the scene shows a man violently attacking Stergious when she was already unconscious, kicking and punching her in the face.

She suffered several injuries in the process, as seen in a gruesome photo after the attack.

On Wednesday, a 33-year-old Lancaster man, identified as Dammion Adkins, was arrested after Los Angeles Police Department investigators located him.

He was being held without bail.
