Police Investigate Another Possible San Diego Knockout Attack
Another possible San Diego knockout attack has police on high alert. This, after a Ocean Beach man came forward this week claiming he was possibly the victim of the ‘knockout’ game on Valentine’s Day night.
In November, local news stations reported on two possible knockout attacks in the Gaslamp Quarter. The Valentine’s Day attack allegedly happened near Sunset Cliffs. In an anonymous letter sent to OBRag.org, a person calling himself a fourth-generation Ocean Beach resident said he climbed the stairs near a seawall and walked up Pescadero Avenue when he was suddenly sucker-punched several times in the face. The victim said two attackers included one man in a gold party mask and another possibly in a silver mask. They were also wearing jeans and white hoodies.
San Diego police confirm that victim – a 36-year-old man – walked into a substation approximately 10 hours after the attack and filed a report. Officials say they are treating the case as a random attack. And despite that in previous knockout attacks the assailants have not worn masks, police say they are not ruling out the game connection.
Uploaded videos of the knockout game are unfortunately becoming very popular. In the knockout game, assailants randomly punch people on the street in an attempt to knock them out with one blow – all while captured on video.
Cases like this latest possible San Diego knockout attack, deserve full legal attention. Steven Elia, can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and bring those allegedly responsible for your injuries to justice.
