The Dope star was reportedly targeted by a group of thugs while he was walking in downtown Los Angeles. He was beaten so badly, he was knocked unconscious.

According to, a friend spotted Bonds lying in the middle of the street and took him to a local hospital, where he received eight stitches for a cut on his eyebrow and two more stitches for another gash on his head.

Bonds allegedly declined to report the incident to police and is said to have no idea who his attackers were.

The 39 year old has been working on his movie comeback since 2011, when he completed an 11-year prison sentence for manslaughter relating to the death of his aunt's boyfriend.

He scored a small role in Gangster Squad in 2013 and featured in filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa's hip-hop drama Dope earlier this year (15). He previously appeared in Spike Lee's Get on the Bus and Famuyiwa's romantic comedy The Wood in 1999.
