LAPD Looking for BMW Driver Caught on Video Apparently Hitting Parking Attendant With Car

Officials searching for a man who apparently intended to hit a parking attendant with his car in downtown Los Angeles released surveillance video of the incident on Wednesday.

The altercation happened in the 800 block of South Figueroa Street at around 11:30 p.m. on June 9, according to Los Angeles police.

The video shows a driver speak to a parking attendant while apparently having trouble getting out of the facility.

The two soon appear to get into an argument. At some point, the driver starts trying to lift the gate to exit the structure.

The employee attempts to stop the driver and walks in front of the vehicle, footage shows. The driver then pulls forward and appears to knock the worker to the ground.

Soon, two other motorists waiting in the facility exit their vehicles and walk over to the victim.

About two and a half minutes later, the assailant apparently drags the parking attendant to the side before driving away.

The victim sustained minor injuries, LAPD said.

The agency described the perpetrator as a 30- to 55-year-old man with brown eyes and black hair about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 180 pounds. He also had black facial hair, police said.

The man drove a black 2015 to 2018 BMW M6 4DR with Galpin Ford dealer plates, according to investigators.
