A man suffered a shattered scapula, collapsed lung and three broken ribs after being attacked earlier this week by a homeless man in Studio City.
The victim, who lives right next to Tere’s Mexican Grill, was talking to two homeless men at the restaurant’s parking lot when one of the men attacked him from behind, according to a post on Next Door by his wife.
The suspect used a metal pole to attack the victim.
The victim’s wife said they called 911 immediately and Los Angeles Police Department officers quickly rushed to scene.
However, police have not caught the suspects yet.
The attack on the Studio City resident is a cause for concern for the community.
On Sunday neighbors were posting signs around the area after they were told arrests can’t be made without them and making flyers. With this man’s photo, Guile said he is the one who attacked her husband. He was captured on numerous security cameras after the attack.
One of the suspects is described as riding a Door Dash bicycle and is about 5-foot-5-inches. That suspect is white, with long hair and a beard, according to Cecilia Guile.
Guile told CBSLA Reporter Joy Benedict that the issue started Wednesday when they noticed two homeless men moving belongings onto their property. Security video showed them walking through backyards, which led to several neighbors called police.
Neighbor Steve Down heard the commotion and called for help He didn’t realize it was his neighbor who was assaulted.
“Yelling, shouting couldn’t make out much of the dialogue but one thing I did hear the word kill and called 911,” Down said. “The whole neighborhood was terrified and it’s not just someone passing through it’s people who are living right below us.”
