San Diego police are investigating so called “knockout attacks” in which people on the street randomly punch strangers. They’ve been happening across the country… and now, allegedly here in the San Diego area.
Victoria Hyatt tells 10News her husband was the latest victim of an unprovoked attack near the Gaslamp Quarter at Second Avenue and Ash Street.
“They weren’t talking to each other,” she said. “They were just standing next to each other and then out of the blue, the light changed for him to walk across the crosswalk and he just … bam, hit him as hard as he could.”
She says man simply walked away after the sucker punch while her husband stumbled back to his office to report his assault to police.
