Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the attackers, who were caught on video kicking and punching a man in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium after an Elton John concert.
The attack occurred around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, after a “fender bender,” Los Angeles Police Officer Mike Lopez said.
Details of the crash were not known.
A man and his wife attending the concert were involved in a collision, got out of a vehicle and an argument ensued that escalated into violence, Lopez said. A woman hit another woman and a man hit another man.
Video immediately after the attack shows a man lying motionless on the ground, still being attacked – possibly by multiple assailants – although others tried to contain the violence. The man’s wife has her hair pulled as she tries to check on her husband.
“Everyone was gone when the police got there,” Lopez said. Officers met the victims at a hospital, where they received medical treatment and picked up a report of suspected battery.
The man suffered a concussion and a broken ankle, among other injuries, CBS2 reported. The station reported that the female victim said she was beaten unconscious along with her husband, whom she tried to revive for about 45 seconds, believing he had died, before eventually regaining consciousness.
TMZ released video capturing some of the violence and reported that the victims were both in their 60s.
A woman who claims to be the victims’ daughter – and a nurse – posted on Instagram on Friday that her father remained hospitalized with fractured bones and head injuries, but that both parents were “down on the ground unconscious”. She claimed four men and two women attacked the couple and neither bystanders nor security officials tried to stop them.
Anyone with information can contact the Los Angeles Police Department at 877-527-3247 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 800-222-8477.
