Brutal assault outside an Elton John concert was allegedly caused by a minor car accident
One of the last stops of Elton John's farewell tour ended in violence when an older couple were brutally assaulted and left unconscious in the parking lot of the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
According to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez, the assault was the result of a "fender-bender."
According to TMZ, a woman allegedly punched their sideview mirror, causing the husband to get out and seek an explanation for her behavior. That was when the situation escalated into violence.
When he blocked the woman's hits, two men appeared on the scene and soon overwhelmed him. The wife too was knocked unconscious and left on the ground. Witnesses said that the woman drove both herself and her husband to the hospital sometime later.
The children of the couple have claimed that their parents were attacked by a group of six people. By the time security and police arrived on the scene, everyone had left. In an Instagram post, the couple's family members asked the public for help in identifying the attackers.
"Last night, as my parents were leaving the Elton John concert at Dodger Stadium, 4 men and 2 women randomly jumped my mom and dad. Many people witnessed and recorded but no one helped them."
According to KTLA, one person was arrested in connection with the attack outside the Elton John concert on Friday. The suspect's identity has not been revealed by the police.
