Actor Corey Sligh, known for his small recurring part on the soap Young and the Restless was attacked on Thanksgiving in a Hollywood Rite-Aid parking lot. The 27-year-old actor and his girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, were headed to Rite-Aid to surprise a friend who works there with a Thanksgiving meal. In the parking lot, Sligh and Berhorst encountered a car driving erratically in the congested holiday parking lot and told the driver to be more careful. The car drove away, only to immediately return. The driver went after Sligh, hitting him with the car. The driver and passenger then both got out of the car and began beating Sligh to a pulp. Sligh suffered a number of injuries, including a broken arm, and is now wheelchair bound. He will have to seek physical therapy in order to walk again. Sligh told The Wrap,
“I’m happy to have the problem of relearning to walk instead of not being able to walk at all. I’m pretty blessed. It was pretty scary [being] on the hood of that car, but I’m happy to still be able to move my neck,” he continued, "They both attacked me. One guy hit me repeatedly in the face. I looked up and saw the other guy shoving Alisa and [our female friend],” he said. “I tried going over there while the first guy was hitting me. I had to tackle one of the guys to get him off and that's when my arm snapped.”
Sligh was in pretty high spirits considering he is recuperating at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. He even posted the screen grab from a Hollywood Reporter article on Instagram with the caption:

Well, I guess I can finally say "I made the Hollywood Reporter!" lol. #thankful no matter what to be here! Hope to heal up in the next few weeks with Rehab and family!
Sligh is now home, but remains wheelchair bound. Both attackers were apprehended shortly after the attack and remain in custody. They both face a being charged with multiple felony counts of battery.
