WEST LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A man is wanted by authorities after surveillance video appeared to show him using a fire extinguisher to attack a woman on a sidewalk in west Los Angeles on Saturday morning.
The seemingly unprovoked incident happened near the intersection of Pico and Gateway boulevards, where the woman claims she was simply walking when a man on a scooter approached her from behind.
The victim said the attacker hit her on the back of the head with a fire extinguisher. Footage appears to show the woman falling to the ground as a red cylindrical object rolls away and the man hits the road on the scooter and drives away.
The woman holds her hand to the back of her head as she rises to her knees. She said she was taken to a hospital with a concussion.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said officers had picked up a report of an attack with a deadly weapon, adding that the investigation is ongoing.
