Authorities Monday are seeking public help to find an attempted murder suspect who allegedly assaulted a 61-year-old man in a parking lot and left him with severe head injuries and brain trauma.
Officers were dispatched for a medical call about 1:50 a.m. on July 12, according to Sgt. Rudy Gatto of the Irwindale Police Department.
They arrived at an Arco gas station parking lot at 110 Longden Ave. and found the man unconscious and non-responsive, Gatto said. Investigators reviewed surveillance footage and saw that a suspect “suddenly and without apparent provocation struck the victim in the face,” according to Gatto.
The suspect left the location in a 2003 Honda Pilot, which officers found in La Puente, Gatto said.
The SUV’s owner, who is cooperating with investigators, said he does not know the name of the suspect, as he was only giving a ride to an acquaintance, according to Gatto.
The victim’s family told police that he has complete memory loss and doesn’t recognize his family, Gatto said. It was not immediately clear if he was released from a hospital, but police said the victim sustained severe head injuries and brain trauma.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his mid-30s, about 6 feet tall, 275 pounds, with a large build, black hair, black moustache/goatee, the Irwindale Police Department reported. He was wearing a black T-shirt with a Marilyn Monroe design, black-and-white checkered shorts and gray tennis shoes.
Anyone with information about the suspect was encouraged to contact Detective D. Cornejo at 626-430-2290 or at email@example.com.
