Culver City Police Release New Video of Suspect Who Attacked Asian American Woman

July 2, 2021
Police in Culver City, Calif., released a new surveillance video of a suspect accused of attacking an Asian American woman last month.
What happened: The incident around 1 a.m. on June 14 saw the suspect assault the victim after he asked for a cigarette and she did not have any.
  • The attack occurred as the woman was on the way to work, walking westbound on the 13300 block of Washington Boulevard.
  • The victim tried to walk away but the suspect “approached her from behind, yelled a racial slur and hit her on the right side of her head with an unknown object.”
  • The victim fell to the ground and suffered a “severe” laceration to her right ear, but police said she is expected to recover.
A better look: Police previously released a video of the actual incident, but the new surveillance footage offers a clearer view of the suspect’s face.
  • The new video shows the suspect entering a nearby business after the attack.
  • He was originally described as a white man, approximately 35 years old, stands 5 feet and 9 inches, and is heavyset with light-colored, possibly balding hair.
  • In the new video, the suspect can be seen with a full beard, wearing an olive green T-Shirt — with a white shirt showing underneath — long dark shorts and dark shoes.
