August 13, 2021 7:56 PM

On August 7, 2021, at about 2:30 AM, Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) Officers responded to a call for service at the intersection of 2nd Street and Wilshire Avenue. The callers reported several people fighting in the middle of the street.

When officers arrived on scene, they located a victim in the 100 block of Wilshire Blvd. in front of 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen, lying on his back with a significant injury to his head. A witness and friend of the victim told the officers that a group of males physically assaulted the victim, causing him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness for a period of time.

The subjects involved were last seen running north on 2nd Street from Wilshire Blvd. The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital where he has remained and continues to be treated for the head injury.

SMPD Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the group of suspects involved in this incident. Based on camera footage obtained by detectives, there were up to seven subjects involved in the fight, with S-1 knocking the victim unconscious. It is believed that all involved individuals were patronizing bars in the area, possibly the Bungalow at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel, prior to the fight.

Suspect Description:

  • S-1: Male, Black, 5’10”-6’0”, 20-30 years old, 180-200 lbs, white long sleeve shirt, black pants.
  • Other Subjects Involved: Male, Black, 6’3”-6’4”, 28-35 years old, 230-250 lbs, black shirt, black pants, white shoes, bald, facial hair.
