San Diego Padres outfielder Tommy Pham was left bloodied with a huge wound to his lower back after being stabbed outside a strip club, video confirms.
The footage shows Pham, 32, with a blood-soaked T-shirt from a wound that cops said was 12 inches long and 5 inches wide after he was stabbed late Sunday outside Pacers Showgirls International in San Diego.
The clip, which does not have audio, shows a group of people, some without shirts, outside the jiggle joint after Pham was stabbed. At one point, several men start fighting, with one being knocked to the ground with a punch before he’s attacked by several others, video shows.
Bouncers break up the scuffle and move them away from the area as Pham — who was wearing red sweatpants and a white T-shirt — can been seen watching the melee just moments after he was attacked.
Paramedics then arrived at the club and treated Pham, who needed stitches to close the “slash wound” but avoided damage to any organs, police said.
The violent confrontation started when Pham was leaving the club and asked two strangers who were arguing near his car to get away from his vehicle, sources told the San Diego Union-Tribune.
It doesn’t appear that Pham knew the suspects, a police spokesman told the newspaper. Detectives were looking into the incident and were seeking video from the club and other nearby businesses, the newspaper reported.
“While it was a very traumatic and eye-opening experience for me, I’m on the road to recovery and I know I’ll be back to my offseason training routine in no time,” Pham said in a statement.
Team officials, meanwhile, said Pham was listed in good condition Monday and was expected to make a full recovery.
A weapon was not recovered from the scene and no arrests had been made as of Wednesday, NBC San Diego reported.
