Police have identified a suspect still at large after beating two women with an aluminum baseball bat outside a bar in Chula Vista.
The attack left two victims with serious head injuries on October 15, on the 600 block of East Street. Jorge Becerra, age 27, is suspected of severely beating the women in the aftermath of a fistfight in front of the On the Rocks Bar, according to the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD).
The suspect was described as a Hispanic man weighing about 200 pounds with a height of roughly five feet and nine inches, according to the CVPD.
"He walks up behind one of them. She's not even looking at him and with all his strength, cracks her in the head. He could have killed her," CVPD Lt. Fritz Reber said.
Becerra is considered a dangerous suspect in San Diego, with possible gang ties, said CVPD officers. Police have asked the public to alert the authorities if they see the man, who has an active, outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Surveillance video shows the suspect beating the women, with one suffering a laceration to the back of her head that required surgical sutures, according to the CVPD. The other woman need rehabilitation after debilitating injuries that fractured her skull and orbital bone.
"This could easily been a homicide," Lt. Reber said.
