Adult performer Cole Connor was attacked and mugged by a group of men early Sunday morning in Hollywood.
Connor, who appears on OnlyFans and in Falcon Studios productions, took to social media to share details of the harrowing event.
Connor says he was going to fetch his ID from a friend’s car when the attack took place. Upon reaching the vehicle, the men insisted it was their car and started beating him.
In a video posted shortly after the attack with the caption “Stage 1 in getting over bad sh*t that happens to you: Sarcasm”, Connor said:
“They thought it was their car, so obviously when I unlocked it with the keys that my friend gave me and opened the door, they totally should have attacked me and almost killed me with a bat. I would have done the same thing!”

“Not my prettiest picture, but I’m okay,” Cole captioned an Instagram photo of his bruised face. “Thanks for the love and support. I got mugged and beat up on Saturday night in Hollywood not far from where I live. My phone has been replaced already, cards and wallet will be replaced.”

He continued: “At the doctor now to look at an ocular fracture. May face feels numb on the left side and I can feel some nerve damage when I touch next my nose or wink my left eye and my eye feels weird.”
“Be careful out there, you guys,” he added.
On his Instagram Story, Connor further explained, “So what happened was, I got mugged… late Saturday night, Sunday morning-ish. I’m okay. I got hit a lot in the head – a few times before I could get away. I did get away before they started hitting me with a bat, so that’s good… I got away with minimal damage. I’m very lucky.”
The next day, he posted updates on Twitter. “Thanks to all the friends helping me walk, picking up after me, and taking care of little Boris while on painkillers! Thanks a million!”

In another post, Connor said he’d need more medical care to address the blow to his eye:

They were obviously waiting for someone to ambush. I have a dream that one day one of their victims will be armed and not afraid of just opening fire.
so true. if they’re willing to punch a face instead of all on the body, there’s some sort of real deep-seeded hate involved.
I cringe to say I agree with you, one thing to damage or take the car, this sweet guy could dead, not simple, hope they are found and jailed,
Why would you leave your ID or any other valuables in a car? I work in retail and always have customers who need to run out to their cars at check-out because they left their wallets or Credit Card in the car! Who is so careless with their valuables?
….in response to “lakeviewer” comments regarding the leaving of one’s valuables in a parked automobile. Your judgmental remarks might give readers the idea you actually know this victim AND know all the details as to why his ID might have been in his friend’s car to begin with. However, like so many “judgmental commentaries” you left those details out. For those that haven’t a clue OR come close to knowing this victim (I’m intentionally leaving out his “professional title” because it makes no difference how he makes a living), there could be numerous logical reasons for not carrying important docs on your body. Especially if after dark or if you have plans to get “frisky” a little later and don’t want to worry about accidentally dropping said docs on the floor (or under the bed, dining room table, etc.) in an unusual or previously unknown atmosphere…. which any healthy male with a robust sex life has done “on occasion”!
Don’t go anywhere alone…get educated/trained on gun use…start carrying guns… stay very aware of your environment and…….Shoot to kill!!! I know that I sound paranoid, but kill or be killed!!!
Were these thugs apprehended?
Please kids, follow the buddy system when it’s late at night/early morning.
i,m in love lol if I found these morons, hell would be unleashed, He did not say if any slurs were flung, ?? he is so sweet i,m loving him
WOW!! You can’t even enjoy a night out with friends without these lowlife thugs assaulting you. They’re probably high, lying in wait, waiting to ambush you. And of corse, it’s always multiple thugs, because they’re a bunch of P_ssy’s. Felons, Get a job, get a life. Cole, wishing you a speedy recovery and pray it’s nothing more serious. Totally disgusting.
sorry this happened to him but – – – i think we toss around the word “pornstar” way too casually.
I feel like a bad person. When I read the headline in my email before going to the article I thought it said pornstar beat by group…. and I thought it was one of his porn movies and it made me a little hot. After reading I of course feel bad for him.
Lots of security cameras all over the place these days – with luck, these criminals will be spotted and identified.
Their minds must have been affected by drugs!
I was just there visiting. I was born and raised in California. But Weho has really changed a lot. Muggings seem to happen all the time. Glad he’s ok. Could have been worse. And I thought Miami was bad Geeeze!
I’d like some more information on where in Hollywood this took place.
Nothing good happens to people who wander about after midnight.
….gee golly Tombear, I didn’t think preachers are supposed to be reading publications like Queerty?
Fname Optional Lname
that almost sounds like victim blaming
He’s not ‘preaching’, he’s speaking the truth. How often do we read about people being brutally attacked at night in our present times? It’s a very dangerous period we’re living in whether you’re gay or straight. Tombear is not saying bad things happen to queer people, he’s saying they happen to anybody. Maybe it happened to him or someone he knows? Whenever I’m out at night I make sure I’m traveling in a pack, never by myself. Scumbags like the one who attacked Connor were in a group, and your chances at survival when it’s late in any neighborhood are increased when you’re with a bunch of other people. Why are you so quick to pass judgement on what he’s saying? Are you straight, a preacher, a homophobe or any of the three? Of course you aren’t. So calm the f down.
With all the cameras in LA they’ll find the culprits soon enough.
Los Angeles sounds awfully dangerous these days. But, everywhere sounds dangerous these days. I’m very happy he wasn’t killed but it looks like he may have some eye trouble. That can suck but at least he’s alive.
There are 19,500 cities and towns in the USA. About 90% of these of these stories of major crime and chaos come from about 25 cities.
Hank31, that’s because 90% of the population lives in those 25 cities.
Nothing good ever happens at 2 AM, compounded by being alone makes it far worse.
To the ignorant ass who questioned why someone leaves ID etc in the car….perhaps you will be the next victim. Your comment is misdirected. The issue is why these criminals attacked an innocent person. The issue is, have they been apprehended. Last I looked leaving personal items in a friend’s car was not illegal. Ever know someone who was pickpocketed in a bar? One of many reasons one might lock up stuff. Next time, just put the dunce cap back on that you wore all through school and stfu. Don’t hate on this guy because he is better looking than you, has a better body and has people who will pay to see on him what makes people nauseous looking at you.
Sad to hear of this but hopefully there were video cameras that captured the whole thing. On the other hand if this happened to me, or any friend or family member, the authorities would never ever find the body. thus relieving the taxpayers the costs of his trial and incarceration. Cousins Riccardo and Al would pay the bastard a nice quiet visit and would convince the creep of his misdeed then to convince him they’d break his knees or rearrange his face and nobody would hear the screams and it would be a nice clean complete job. We Italians demand respect and give respect, don’t take this kind of SHIT from anybody and get justice quickly rather than let some namby pamby bleeding heart liberal judge give the bastard a slap on the wrist and therefore no justice served. Time to get weaponized and carry, legally of course. That’s all I can say for now to avoid incrimination
I do agree that at night it would be best to carry a concealed handgun for protection. If he had just drawn it and pointed, maybe the morons would have scurried away. There would be no need for any bloodshed.
First of all: You can’t bring a firearm into a bar/club in California. So, he would have had to leave it in the car with his ID.
Second: You are taught that if you draw a gun, you better be prepared to fire it at someone.
Having a gun is not the answer. The buddy system and/or the club having better security is. Another answer is the city making the area safer for all.
Bloody animals! No need for it but sadly something we queers face every day. However on a up note…buddy you still look HOT!! Def bottom for you any day lol 😉
Don’t let the bastards get us down xxx
Honest question. Why is he like justifying the attackers by saying: “they thought it was their car, I’d probably done the same”. Were they neighbors?
Read the title of his post. He was being sarcastic, obviously.
Just because someone says they “thought” something does not mean that they actually did. That’s often used to deflect blame for them having done/doing something that is most likely illegal.
People DO lie all the time.
I’m not blaming the victim, but who leaves their ID in a car?
He’ll be fine…He’s been toss around many times before in bed.
I just hope that they didn’t damage the goods, you know.
Actually I would love to see a gay man with a legally concealed weapon blow away a robber at an ATM. Remember Bernard Getz who blew away three thugs a few years ago. They called him The Subway Vigilante. They kept his sexuality secret because he was gay and his attorneys thought the Jury verdict would be more favorable to a straight man. When I saw him in the Village at the Boots and Sadles bar I told him he was a hero and bought him several beers. Gay men will continue to be robbed and victimized in the gay ghettos of America until we defend ourselves with guns or whatever.
