4:23 p.m. (Pacific Time) — The Los Angeles Police Department tells TMZ this stemmed from a conflict between two different parties, which escalated into violence. We are told that two unknown suspects attacked the two victims, which included punching, choking, and pulling their hair. We were told that the two victims went to the hospital, but the extent of their injuries is unknown. Los Angeles police are searching for the perpetrators.
A brutal assault on an older couple leaving the Elton John The concert at Dodger Stadium this week was caught on camera, as were the alleged shooters — and TMZ has the video.
This incident has gone viral on social media in recent days, and for good reason…a man and a woman, both in their 60s, were senselessly attacked on Thursday night by what we were told was a group of at least 4.-6 people, this while trying to get out of the parking lot.
Sources with direct knowledge told TMZ … the older couple, who had gone to the concert alone, were preparing to leave when a woman allegedly hit her side mirror, prompting the husband to get out, confront her and seek an explanation.
We are told that the woman tried to hit the older man, who blocked her. At this point, our sources say the gentleman was harassed by at least two men who started crying on him… part of which is on video. This video is graphic, but you can see him getting hit.
Sadly, it wasn’t over yet… we’re told the wife jumped in to help her husband, only to reportedly be knocked to the ground by some of the men in the group. She was knocked unconscious, and they both stood there helplessly as people surrounded them.
Our sources say bystanders filmed it, but not much else to help these poor people. As the group tried to get away from the scene, a man followed them and recorded… only to apparently be attacked when the guy in black noticed him and pounced.
Eventually, we were told they helped the couple back to their car and the wife came to. Our sources say they were waiting for EMS to show up…but first responders and/or stadium security took too long to arrive. After a while, the wife felt well enough to take them both to the hospital… where we were told that her husband was hospitalized.
At some point, someone recorded what we were told was one of the women who was allegedly involved in the questioning of what appears to be a police officer. Our sources say the officer didn’t realize she was one of the people alleged to be in the mix… and they released her.
The children of this couple, who were not present during the night in question, are now desperately pleading with the public to come forward with any information to identify the 6 people who claim they beat their parents, and have filed a police report. .
As you can imagine, they want justice for their family… as their parents could have easily been murdered and as of now, the alleged attackers have apparently gotten away with it.
Our law enforcement sources tell us that LAPD is aware of the incident and is investigating. No arrests have been made. We’ve reached out to Dodger Stadium…haven’t responded yet.
