San Diego Drag Performer Attacked as Bystanders Watch

Kickxy Vixen-Styles

A San Diego drag queen has been attacked.

Kickxy Vixen-Styles, a greeter at Rich’s, was assaulted by a man at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, after the bar closed.

The attacker, who had been removed from the club earlier by security, had waited for Vixen-Styles in the parking lot. The man approached the performer from behind, and then used a vehicle as a weapon.

“I'm done for the night and I'm walking to my car when all of a sudden he's behind me and I try to get in my car but it was too late,” Vixen-Styles told the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News.  “He grabs my door open, and at that point I'm stuck between my door and him slamming it against me and trying to break my window.”

Vixen-Styles was visible to the crowd still in front of Rich’s. But screams for assistance were ignored.

“A group of four trans girl[s] just sat across the street watching instead of getting help,” Vixen-Styles said.

"I just felt so helpless and in a way just let down by the people around,” Vixen-Styles added.

Eventually, a bystander did alert Rich’s security team, who “handled the attacker,” the San Diego publication reports. No arrest was made.

Vixen-Styles describes the man as in his 20s, medium build, Middle Eastern, with black hair and a goatee.
