Knife-Wielding Thugs Attack Pearl Jam Bassist

5/14/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pearl jamOne of the guys from Pearl Jam was jumped and robbed by three masked scumbags with knives -- and the whole thing was caught on tape.

According to a police report filed in Atlanta, Jeff Ament -- who plays bass for the band -- was pulling up to their studio back in April with a friend, when the three little bitches darted out of some nearby woods, smashed the windows of Ament's ride and demanded cash.

The bassist tried to take off on foot, but the robbers caught up with him, knocked him to the ground and stole over $7,000 in money and goods, according to Rolling Stone.

Ament suffered a laceration on his head and was treated at the scene. The whole thing was caught on a nearby security camera -- but despite the eye in the sky, no arrests have been made.

The REAL DEAL    

The blacker Atlanta gets the worse the crime - this place is becoming a war zone due to all of the black gangs and criminals that came from New Orleans after Katrina. We need a government who is not afraid to go to war with them and put an end to this madness by any means necessary. When will the community leaders grow a pair and take a leadership role in helping stop the problems and not allowing this to continue. Let's take America and our cities back.

I remember PJ had a t-shirt that said "9 out of 10 kids prefer crayons to guns." Bet you wish you had a gun when this all went down, huh Jeff? Too bad for you you ran into the 1 out of ten that don't prefer crayons.
