Burbank Police Wednesday sought public help to find a man who attacked another man with a baseball bat at a car wash and made his getaway in a red Camaro.

Officers were sent to American Coin Wash, 520 S. Victory Blvd., about 5:15 p.m. Monday, said Burbank Police Sgt. Claudio Losacco.

A 29-year-old Burbank resident told the officers that he was cleaning his car when he was approached and challenged to a fight by a man he did not know, Losacco said.

“The suspect then punched the victim several times in the face,” the sergeant said. “The suspect left the scene for a brief time, but returned, this time armed with a baseball bat. The suspect approached the victim and struck him several times with the bat.”

The victim suffered moderate injuries to his face and upper body, Losacco said.

The suspect was described as white, about 40 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call Detective Ken Schiffner at (818) 238-3210.
