According to CBS affiliate KGMB, Allenby told reporters that Charade Keane, a homeless woman, told him she saw some men throw him out of a car trunk, but Keane denies seeing that. "I can't say somebody did something I didn't see them do," Keane told KGMB. "I can't even tell you how he got hurt. I just know that he was bleeding everywhere."

Keane told the station she found Allenby sitting on a planter at a street corner - just steps away from the wine bar - with a bloodied face early Saturday. She said Allenby was arguing with two homeless men she knows. "He was saying that they knew something about what happened to him and they were saying that (they) just saw him fall and hit a rock and it was kind of weird because I didn't know what happened," Keane told the station.

As she and Allenby walked away, he said all his belongings were gone and he asked her to negotiate with the two homeless men, who he thought were robbers. "He asked me to tell them that he would give them $500 to get his wallet and his phone back, because it turned out he had one credit card left and he wasn't sure why and that's when we thought maybe they wanted more money," Keane said. "And when I asked them, they said they didn't have the things, but still wanted him to give them money, so I told Mr. Allenby that and that's when I was kind of worried, but that's when the other boy came up."

That other boy - a young man in the military - helped Allenby and paid for a taxi to get him back to his hotel, Keane recalled. Allenby didn't call police until he was back at his hotel. He told the media he didn't want to call police at the scene because he didn't feel safe there...(link)

But he could have had the taxi take him straight to the police or a hospital. Had he been sitting on that planter for nearly three hours?
