There's an old saying that goes, "dating is a blood sport." This proved to be very true for one not-so-lucky woman.

According to police, a 20-year-old woman who was attempting to ask another woman out got punched in the face. Some time around 1:30 a.m., the woman approached the other gal on the 2100 block of Market Street, between Church and Sanchez streets, and asked her out.

After the girl asked the 25-year-old woman out, a man described to be between 20 and 25 years old tried to get in on the action, and suggested that the three of them go on a date. The victim refused the overtures, and was punched in the face by the woman she asked out, according to a police report.

A 30-year-old man who saw this incident tried to intervene and he too was punched in the head several times, knocking him unconscious. The suspects took the man's wallet and some cash before bolting in an unknown direction, police said.

The victim was taken to St. Luke's Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Local bartender Matt Grippo was working when the incident happened. Although he didn't witness it, he brought the injured man some ice.

"It was the busiest night of the year," he said.

    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
