Police are asking the public for help identifying a group of suspects wanted in connection to a late night brawl outside a downtown Santa Monica bar recently that left a victim with a serious head injury.

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on August 7, around 2:30 a.m., officers responded to a call for service at the intersection of 2nd Street and Wilshire Boulevard reporting several people fighting in the middle of the street.

“When officers arrived on scene, they located a victim in the 100 block of Wilshire Blvd. in front of 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen, lying on his back with a significant injury to his head. A witness and friend of the victim told the officers that a group of males physically assaulted the victim, causing him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness for a period of time,” the SMPD said in a press release.

The subjects involved were last seen running north on 2nd Street from Wilshire Boulevard, police say. The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital where he has remained and continues to be treated for the head injury.

The SMPD noted that there were up to seven suspects involved in the fight.

“Based on camera footage obtained by detectives, there were up to seven subjects involved in the fight, with [suspect 1] knocking the victim unconscious. It is believed that all involved individuals were patronizing bars in the area, possibly the Bungalow at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel, prior to the fight,” the Department said.

Anyone with additional information pertaining to this incident and the subjects involved is strongly encouraged to contact Detective Jacob Holloway with the Criminal Investigations Division 310-458-8934, email at Jacob.Holloway@smgov.net or Santa Monica Department’s Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8427.
