A man who was knocked unconscious during a road rage incident last week remains hospitalized, and police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the three men captured on video in the assault.
A motorist was stopped at a red light on Woodman Avenue at Victory Boulevard in Van Nuys at 9:30 p.m. on New Year’s Day when a Jeep that had been driving erratically pulled behind him, authorities said.
Both vehicles eventually pulled over, according to a news release from the LAPD, and the driver and the Jeep’s occupants faced off in the street. It was not immediately clear what spurred the confrontation, but video shows one of the men from the Jeep punching the other driver in the head, knocking him to the ground.
The three then ran to their vehicle — a black Jeep with tinted windows —and fled south on Woodman Avenue, the video shows.
The injured man was taken to a hospital, where he has not regained consciousness since the attack, police said.
