Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack Osbourne victim of random attack in Los Angeles

Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack Osbourne was the victim of random attack at a Los Angeles coffee shop on April 3.

TMZ reports Osbourne was sitting on the shop’s sidewalk patio when what appeared to be a homeless man came out of nowhere and sucker punched Jack on the right side of his head.

Sitting with his back to the street, Osbourne reportedly got up and threw his coffee at the alleged assailant, who later attempted to stab police officers with a screwdriver, according to People magazine.

“It occurred at 9:09 a.m. yesterday on the 1200 block of Ventura Blvd.,” a media relations officer for the Los Angeles Police Department said Thursday. “Officers responded to a battery call and when they arrived, the suspect produced a screwdriver and tried to stab them. A use of force occurred.

“Suspect was taken into custody for assault with a deadly weapon for assaulting a police officer. Plus additional charges for the battery.”

A rep for Osbourne tells TMZ that the rocker is doing fine following the incident.

Ozzy, meanwhile, is currently recovering at home from recent surgery over an injury from a fall at his Los Angeles home that aggravating years-old issues from a 2003 ATV accident.

The setback has resulted in the rock icon postponing his 2019 live schedule to a series of new dates in 2020.
