Tejano Singer Attacked Outside Texas Nightclub

HOUSTON (May 14, 2013)—Oscar De La Rosa, the lead singer for the Grammy-winning Tejano group La Mafia, suffered head wounds in an unprovoked attack early Tuesday outside of a Houston nightclub.

De La Rosa was resting Tuesday at his Houston home, a spokesman said.

Band co-founder Armando Lichtenberger, Jr. said De La Rosa and his driver were attacked early Monday by a man whom they didn’t know.

Nobody has been arrested, but police are looking for a man who became violent after he was thrown out of the bar.

Lichtenberger said De La Rosa and his driver were knocked unconscious.

De La Rosa suffered facial cuts, eye damage and lost two teeth.

Lichtenberger said La Mafia, which formed in 1980 in Houston, will consider whether to cancel any performances.

La Mafia in 2006 won a Grammy for Tejano album: "Nuevamente."
