Authorities in Los Angeles are looking for a suspect who they say was captured on video Saturday brutally punching two women at a hot dog stand.
The LAPD said the incident occurred in Downtown Los Angeles.
Attention Los Angeles — this guy brutally punched two women at a hotdog stand on Jan. 26 in the area of 6th & Spring. Someone knows him, and we would like to be one of those people.

It looks like these good Samaritans were attacked for trying to help a vendor out working to earn a living.
“Someone knows him, and we would like to be one of those people,” read a tweet by LAPD on Tuesday along with a video clip.
Los Angeles’ Fox 11 reported that the two female victims had overheard the suspect arguing with a vendor about a $6 hot dog and stepped in to defuse the situation. The suspect is seen in the video surrounded by onlookers and flees the scene after the alleged punches.
