Shocking footage has emerged of a man’s brutal beating after an Elton John concert in Los Angeles last week, and an assailant has been arrested after knocking the man unconscious.
The victim said he was leaving the concert when someone hit the side mirror of his car, where he and his wife were sitting.
When he got out of the car to ask who did it, a woman approached him and claimed it was her before trying to put her hands on him.
The video shows the man on the ground with his hands up being repeatedly punched by another man in a blue shirt in the Dodgers Stadium parking lot.
When the victim is kicked back to the ground after attempting to get up, another assailant in a black shirt joins in and delivers a violent slap to the face, knocking the beaten man seemingly unconscious.
The video begins with the man in the blue shirt punching the victim and kicking him to the ground when he tries to get up
The man is then beaten further as he lies defenseless on the ground, knocking him unconscious
The man in the black shirt even throws a girlfriend aside to get his punch before attempting to attack a bystander and snatch his phone.
While the two attackers have not been publicly identified, one suspect has been arrested in connection with the attack.
The victims also remain unknown, but brought their story to KCAL9 and describe the harrowing attack.
‘Before I know it, a big gorilla is coming towards me. This man was whining to me. I fought back, but I don’t think I did anything,” the victim told KABC-TV.
At that moment, the main character in the blue shirt came up to him and started beating him, prompting the victim to protect himself.
This is around the point where the video starts, and the guy said, ‘Before I know it, I’m seeing different legs. People who bully me. My wife came, she said she was pulling people off me.’
While you can clearly see the man being beaten, his wife’s ordeal was also harrowing.
She said she got out of the car after seeing the crowd form around her husband, but when she tried to help, she was grabbed by the hair and thrown to the ground.
“I felt like I was being rammed and thrown and my head hit the pavement, so I passed out,” she said.
Her husband supported that, saying, “She was knocked out on the floor, I was knocked out.” Nobody came to help us.’

The victim’s wife looks around helplessly as her husband is knocked unconscious to the ground and asks “if it wasn’t for me, if he had a brain injury and was bleeding to death, who would help him?”
“Leaving my husband on the floor to die… if it wasn’t for me, if he had a brain injury and was bleeding to death, who would help him?” she asked.
At the end of the video, the two men can be seen fleeing as a crowd of curious onlookers follow.
The Los Angeles Police Department released a statement about the incident: “The city of Los Angeles is home to all kinds of entertainment. It is always tragic when acts of violence affect the public’s sense of security when attending such events.’
“The Los Angeles Police Department is committed to restoring public sentiment [of] seek safety and justice in this case and always,” they added.
The show was part of Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, and the final concert of his sets at Dodgers Stadium took place on Sunday.
The 75-year-old singer was joined on stage by other celebrities such as Dua Lipa, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger and Jude Law.
