Police in Los Angeles are hunting for a suspect who was caught on tape in a bar brawl. The large man is seen on tape fighting with two, much smaller, women.
According to Fox News:
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. If you have any info contact Detective Gonzalez 213-996-1851 (after hours contact 213-486-6606). pic.twitter.com/DN1Og1lToM

“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.
It looks like these good Samaritans were attacked for trying to help a vendor out working to earn a living.
