LOS ANGELES (WPRI) — Jubilance following the Red Sox World Series win turned into something much different for one fan.
Josh Davis said he was walking home from a bar after Sunday night’s game in LA when a group of Dodgers fans jumped him, leaving him bloodied and without his wallet.
“All I was thinking about was just getting away from these guys,” said Davis, who is from Fall River but lives in LA now.

He said the group told him it was Dodger country and then swarmed him.
“They got me down on the ground, punching, and stomping and kicking. My body’s really sore. But, as I was trying to get up, that’s when one of them punched me in my mouth and knocked my front teeth out right here,” Davis said.
But it didn’t end there. Davis said the group stabbed him on the arm.
When it was all over, Davis lost four teeth and had nine stitches for the shallow stab wounds he suffered.
Davis said he believes his assailants – who also took his phone and wallet – used a screwdriver in the attack.
“I’m just thankful to be alive, though. And I’m not going to let one bad apple – or nine bad apples – ruin it. I have dodger friends. I’m not going to say the heck with them or anything like that, you know?”
Eyewitness News checked with the Los Angeles Police Department and was told the attack on Davis was being classified as a robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
They said there have been no arrests and as far as they know, it had no connection to the game and happened nowhere near Dodgers Stadium.
