Corey Sligh and his girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, were bringing food to a friend who worked at a Rite Aid, located at 7900 Sunset Blvd. (map), when the attack occurred, she said.

Two men had been driving erratically and traveling about 45 mph in the parking lot when Sligh asked them to slow down and said police had been called.

Then, they struck Sligh, opened the car door into his chest and held back Berhorst as they "fully attacked him," she told KTLA.
