In West Hollywood at approximately 2 in the morning, four people were injured outside of a parking structure. Near Robertson Boulevard and El Tovar Place, a small party of females, in their 20s, were provoking a man who was intoxicated.
Lieutenant Michael White reported that, “He ended up assaulting them with his belt and the buckle of the belt.”
After his violent attack, the male was seen getting into the passenger seat of a car. A female, who attempted to capture a photo of the vehicle’s license plate, was hit by the automobile after the driver had already collided with two other pedestrians.
One woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she went into surgery and remains in critical condition. A male sustained minor injuries. Two more females experienced an unknown amount of injuries due to the assault from the male’s belt.
Ensuing the encounters with three pedestrians, the driver of the vehicle failed to remain at the scene of the accident. It is perceived that the unnamed motorist was inebriated at the time. Thankfully, authorities apprehended both the driver and passenger around two miles from the area of the altercation.
