Rock singer Rik L Rik said Wednesday that a concert security guard attacked and injured him last Friday night, moments after he had finished performing at the Old World Festival Hall. The singer, whose real name is Rick Elerick, said the attack was unprovoked and left him with a gash over his left eye that took 11 stitches to close. But the guard, James Hinton, gave a very different account Wednesday, saying he struck Elerick in self-defense after Elerick lunged at him.
