The lead singer of La Mafia was attacked last night outside of a Houston nightclub.
The band wrote on its Facebook page that singer Oscar De La Rosa suffered severe face lacerations and lost two teeth during the attack. He was taken to the Memorial Herman Hospital for treatment early this morning.
The band writes: “Oscar De La Rosa was assaulted around 1:30 AM this morning leaving a local bar in Houston. He is still in trauma care at Memorial Herman Hospital. He has suffered severe face lacerations and possible damage to his right eye. A police report has been filed and the the identity of the assailant has been confirmed, assault charges will be filed as soon he is located.”
The Washington Post reports that De La Rosa’s driver was also attacked last night. Both individuals were knocked unconscious during the assault.
De La Rosa has left the hospital and is now resting at home.
Police are looking for a man who was thrown out of the bar for being violent last night but have not made any arrest yet.
The band has not announced any concert cancellations yet but co-founder Armando Lichtenberger Jr. said that due to De La Rosa’s condition the band may have to postpone a few shows.
La Mafia formed in 1980 and won a Grammy in 2006 for their album Nueavamente.
