ECHO PARK — Police are asking the public for help to find the man who attacked two others last December following a visit to the Gold Room bar.
There is security camera video of the victims and suspect having drinks in the Sunset Boulevard bar before the fight but police have been unable to make any arrests in the case. Here’s a rundown of the incident released this week by the LAPD:
“On Thursday, December 29, 2016, between 1:50 a.m., and 2:00 a.m., the victims and suspects met inside the Gold Room Bar at 1558 W. Sunset Blvd. The victims and the suspect are observed having drinks together and are captured on the business’ security cameras. When the bar closed, the victims and the suspect all left at the same time. The victims and suspect engaged in a verbal dispute. The suspect struck Victim-2 on the side of the head, causing a laceration. Victim-1 tried to keep the peace after the physical altercation and went to talk to the suspect. The suspect then struck Victim-1 with the knife, cutting him on his neck and face. The suspect fled in a dark colored 4 door sedan.
The suspect is described as male Hispanic, brown hair, brown eyes, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing between 200 to 210 pounds, and is 25 to 30 years old. The suspect has a beard and multiple tattoos on his face, neck and head. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with gray pants.”
Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Officer Morales, Rampart Gang Detectives, at (213) 484-3660 or (213) 484-3655
The attempted murder case took place after two women sustained non-life threatening injuries after being stabbed in the Gold Room in late October. The suspect in that case was apprehended when he returned to the bar.
