The male was bleeding from an injury to his nose and medical was summoned to the casino to treat the victim.

A deputy arrived at the casino and followed the ambulance to the hospital where the victim was treated for his injuries. The victim told the deputy during the interview he ingested methamphetamine with three other males in the back of a van around 3:00 a.m. After ingesting the methamphetamine one of the males started punching him in the face. The male then took his black tote bag, wallet, jacket and sunglasses and dropped him off at the intersection of Singley Road and Brenard Street, Loleta. He walked to the Casino to report the crime and seek medical aid.

The victim did not want to provide the deputy with a description of the suspects for fear of retaliation. The victim was treated and released from the hospital.
