Man knifed in mosh pit at Cattle Decapitation show

Thursday, January 08, 2015 5:41 AM PT


La Habra Cattle Decapitation show knife attack

Last night Cattle Decapitation played a show at La Habra 300 Bowl (or the 13th Frame Lounge) in La Habra, CA, and while death metal/grind concerts can get rowdy, this particular one ended with the hospitalization of two concertgoers.

Early reports indicate that a man was unhappy after being pushed around in the pit, and retaliated by pulling out a knife and slashing another fan's neck. Other attendees quickly sprung into action and collectively attacked the knife wielding man, knocking him unconscious.

Both the attacker and his victim were subsequently hospitalized, reportedly with non-life threatening injuries, and the attacker is expected to be charged with assault.

Interestingly, Suicide Silence drummer Alex Lopez attended the show, and he had the following to say via Twitter:


Meanwhile, another show attendee, Jesse Goytia, had the following to say via Facebook:

"Ok so for those of you that don't know Yes some one got sliced not stabbed at the Cattle D show. The guy that got sliced apparently hit a female who tried to hit him (or did hit him). Females boyfriend sliced the dude that hit her everyone jumped on the guy with the knife and I may have broke the dudes finger taking the knife from him. I was called a hero (I think jokingly) but the cops didn't see it that way. For those of you that didn't realize that was me in cuffs leaned up against Cattle Decapitation trailer. In my opinion both guys are idiots Cattles set got cut by 5 songs and that spot might lose their live entertainment permit. HEY ASSHOLES LEAVE THE WEAPONS AT HOME, DONT HIT FEMALES, AND LADYS IM SORRY BUT STOP TRYING TO FIGHT YOUR MANS BATTLES."

Assault? How is slashing someone's neck not attempted murder? It's a deadly action that missed- would be considered attempted murder if he shot the dude but he lived.

He had it coming! Pushing someone in the pit- the dumb f/uck should have been stabbed. It's that type of irresponsibility that gets kids hurt. Action must be taken.

Seriously it was some La Bamba shit, tatted cholo dude is WAY too drunk. Starts giving actual punches to your dome instead of just pitting. Fight starts, the dude starts losing. His girl pulls a fcking knife from her purse. Security throws a bunch of foos outside and vuahla.

RIIIIIIICHHHHYYYYYYYY!!!

But that's what happened now all these "whittier" people are gonna be acting like rock stars because the news talked to them.

Soooooo basically is what a female who ruined everything......who would've thought, chicks have the smallest brain in the world. Science says so.

1/8/2015 1:04:36 PM
Obviously these people are giving biased opinions and accounts of what happened. They ALL fail to mention that the pit wasn't active whatsoever and I made a comment to a dude starting fights to take it to a hardcore show so he punched ME in the face first. So my boyfriend (the dude with the knife) jumped in. This 400 lb mexican shirtless dude wailed on me like 20 times and his friend that got stabbed jumped in.

1/8/2015 1:07:03 PM
So hitting a woman for making a statement about his poor behavior is acceptable apparently. This guy was a thug and was out looking for a fight. The two security guards involved will tell you the real story. You're all sheep.

"the pit wasn't active whatsoever". You're honor, the state would like call an expert witness to review the secrecy footage and assess the relative activation levels of the pit. The state calls Dr. Prescott Vogel III to the witness stand.

YES THE "STABEE" DID HIT THE STABBERS GIRLFRIEND. He stabbed the guy to protect his girlfriend. If ANYONE saw this, please come forward and give La Habra PD a statement so she can press charges against this guy as well. Yes the stabber fcked up, but what would you do in that situation if someone fcked your girlfriend up? She actually had to go to the hospital to get checked out.

the guy starting shit was a straight gang member named Sal, he's notorious for doing bullshit at shows, he should have gotten shanked, he didn't belong there anyway. Ya I'm putting all his business out there, he's affilited with a Suicidal Tendencies gang

Watch out for this badass, breaking fingers and taking names......
Actually what I said was "everyone jumped on the guy with the knife and I may have broke the dudes finger taking the knife from him" MAY HAVE. I wasn't trying to be a "badass" just filling in some concerned friends on what had happened. They saw me in cuffs and wanted to know what happened.
