Pleasanton Man Attacked, Beaten Into Coma Outside Home
PLEASANTON (CBS SF) – A Pleasanton man is in a coma after he was attacked outside his home early Saturday morning, a police sergeant said.
Police received a hang-up call at 12:11 a.m. and upon calling back learned that a man, later identified as 51-year-old David Lamont, was attacked and lying unconscious outside his home on Middleton Place, Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber said.
An investigation determined that a group of people, possibly teenagers, were outside Lamont’s home making noise and when he went outside to approach them, Schlehuber said.
Pleasanton police Lt. Scott Rohovit said Lamont was attacked by one or more of the people he went out to confront. Police have not identified any suspects.
The victim’s wife found her injured husband on the street and a bystander saw a dark-colored SUV leaving the scene, police said.
Anyone with information on the attack was asked to call Pleasanton police at (925) 931-5000.
