Man Shoves Woman to Ground Outside North Park Redbox

Police released surveillance video Thursday in the hopes of catching the man who shouldered a woman to the ground outside a North Park convenience store.

The assault happened as the woman was using a Redbox movie rental machine outside the 7-Eleven store on Meade Avenue, just west of Interstate 805, at about 9 p.m. on Feb. 15, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said.

Surveillance video captured by the store’s security camera shows the man standing behind the woman, seemingly in line, as she uses the machine.

Then, the man thrusts his shoulder into the woman, the force of which sent her stumbling and ultimately collapsing to the ground. Without glancing at her, he begins using the Redbox machine himself.

The motivation behind the attack was not clear.

The woman can be seen lying on the ground clutching her left arm. Police said the assault left the woman injured. 

SDPD did not provide a description of the man but released the surveillance video Thursday in an attempt to catch the suspect.

Anyone with information should contact the SDPD Mid-City Division at (619) 516-3000.
