Police are looking for a coward who viciously punched a woman in the face following an argument in Venice Beach — the blow appeared to knock the woman out. The two reportedly don’t know each other

More from the Los Angeles Times:

In the video, recorded by cameras at Windward Farms, a woman in a black shirt is seen in a terse exchange with a burly man in a tank top about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The pair didn’t know each other personally but recognized each other from a disagreement earlier in the day, LAPD Sgt. John Marquez said.

The argument sparked up again at the store, where one customer had to step between the two, the video showed.

Eventually, the woman exited the store, but video shows she waited for the man to leave.

“She confronted him on his way out. He just turned around and punched her out,” Marquez said. “She pretty much doesn’t remember.”


A number of people tried to detain the man, including one brave soul who jumped on his back. Ironically, with all the attention on the attacker, few rendered aid to the woman.

The man eventually got away but The Times said police know who he is and are looking for him. He will be charged with suspicion of felony battery when caught.
