A witness of a violent attack in Hillcrest helped police create a composite sketch of one of the suspects.
The incident happened around 6 p.m. on Nov. 24. Police say a family of three was walking in the 3900-block of 3rd Avenue when they were approached by two men.
According to police, the son was wearing a shirt that said “Circus Liquor.” One of the suspects said he was “disrespecting East LA” by wearing that shirt. That’s when first suspect threw the son onto a car.
When the mom tried to stop the man from beating up her son, he grabbed her neck—choking her—and threw her into the bushes, according to officials.
Police say the second suspect held her husband back so he couldn't intervene.
Both the mom and son were hospitalized for minor injuries.
A witness was able to provide police with enough description of the second suspect to make a composite (pictured above.) Otherwise, the suspects have similar descriptions. Both are said to be in their 20s, about 6-foot-2 and 170 pounds. Both were wearing dark clothing.
