Around 3:30 a.m., inside the Greenwich Village venue, which offers live music, Grennan, in an unprovoked attack, was punched, after which he took himself to Beth Israel Hospital by private means for treatment, the police spokesperson said. The crooner later filed a police report at the 6th Precinct stationhouse on W. 10th Street around noon on Friday. Police did not mention Grennan being robbed.

A post on the singer’s Instagram page said he was attacked and robbed outside of the bar, and that his injuries included “a ruptured ear, torn eardrum and issue with his previously fractured jaw.” His Instagram said the singer was still recovering “in hospital.” However, the New York Post said he is now out of the hospital.

Grennan also posted a video on Instagram to give fans an update on his condition.

“It was just wrong place, wrong time,” he said, wearing a baseball cap and looking tired out. “I was punched, knocked out and I woke up and I was like, ‘Whoa, what went on?’ … Wrong place, wrong time.”

Grennan said that, in addition to his other injuries, he suffered “a bit of a concussion.”

Grennan, whose family is Irish, suffered a broken jaw when he was attacked on the street in England when he was 18.

The singer, who sports a distinctive curtain of curly bangs, scored a hit on the charts with last year’s “Little Bit of Love.”

      Hey, John, sorry about that. Well, it was in The Village Sun’s coverage area. If it was Rage Against the Machine would that be better?
