Los Angeles police are searching for a suspect who, without provocation, stabbed an 82-year-old man in a wheelchair while he was having dinner at a fast food restaurant in Mar Vista Thursday night.
The victim was assaulted around 6:55 p.m. at a Taco Bell on the 12000 block of Venice Boulevard, police said. The victim was stabbed in the neck and shoulders and taken to a local hospital, where his condition was stable.
Police released video footage showing the suspect – a man believed to be 25 to 30 years old – approaching the victim from behind and then stabbing him at least twice. The suspect dropped a skateboard he was carrying before fleeing the restaurant.
The suspect is described as male, between 5-foot-1 and 5-foot-6 and weighing about 130 pounds, according to authorities. He has a small tattoo next to his left eye and a large tattoo on the back of his head.
Police have asked anyone with more information to contact Det. Luis Jurado at (310) 482-6369 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
