Two Men Charged With Assault of Soap Actor Corey Sligh

Los Angeles County prosecutors charged two men with multiple felony counts Tuesday in connection with an attack on “Young and the Restless” actor Corey Sligh Thanksgiving Day in Hollywood.

Dusan Lilic, 25 and Nikola Ilic, 23, each face one count each of assault with a deadly weapon, driving under the influence causing injury, driving with a .08 blood alcohol content causing injury, battery with serious bodily injury and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. Ilic also was charged with one count of battery with serious bodily injury and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury.

According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office Sligh was walking to a store on Nov. 27 with his girlfriend and a friend to deliver Thanksgiving dinner to another friend when they saw a car driving erratically in the parking lot. Sligh was concerned someone could get hurt and asked Lilic to stop and leave.

Prosecutors said Lilic opened the car door striking Sligh, who was then hit by the car. “The vehicle drove away, but Lilic and Ilic returned and began beating Sligh, who suffered a broken arm and other injuries,” prosecutors said in a statement.

If convicted on all counts, Lilic faces a maximum of up to seven years in state prison in state prison, while Ilic faces a potential maximum sentence of four years behind bars.
