Three people were taken into custody after a lifeguard was attacked at Venice Beach.
The detained trio was involved in a dispute, possibly over a woman, before the male lifeguard was attacked, according to CBS2.
The lifeguard sustained minor injuries in the attack, which was reported about 7:15 p.m., Thursday, Rosario Herrera of the Los Angeles Police Department‘s Media Relations Section said.
Cellphone video taken by an onlooker shows the lifeguard climbing down from his tower on the pier before being hit repeatedly.
One suspect was also taken to a hospital, but that person’s condition was not immediately available, Herrera said.
Herrera had no details on what might have prompted the attack on the lifeguard.
