HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – Police have asked for the public’s help in finding a man involved in a scuffle that was caught on camera.
It happened in front of a store in the 1900 block of Hollywood Boulevard on November 22nd. The area just a block away from Young Circle, a popular attraction for locals and tourists.
“This is a nice and quiet place to come. It’s for families. That’s so stupid,” said Hollywood resident Juen Reyes.
Surveillance video shows two men fighting. At one point, one of the men gets his opponent in a headlock and then slams him into the store’s front door. The man then rips off his shirt and slams his knee into the other man’s head. He then punches him before storming off.
The injured man gets up, appears to say something, and then the aggressor reappears.
A single punch knocks the victim to the ground. He does not get back up.

The incident happened just after 4 a.m. just as two area bars were closing down for the night.
It’s unclear where the men were coming from. Regulars at one bar though described the scene as a bloody mess and what happened when the fight was over – ridiculous. In the video you see the aggressor pull out his phone and appear to record what has occurred while punching the victim.
“It just stupid. I mean the guy is already on the floor. He’s already done,” said Reyes.
Hollywood police described the man they are looking for as a “Latin male, heavy set with multiple tattoos, including a large skull on his abdomen and a portrait on his right forearm.”
Police hope someone recognizes him and turns him in.
“I hope that they catch that guy. That is bad. We don’t need that in Hollywood,” said Reyes.
When caught, he’ll face an aggravated battery charge.
Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crimestoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
