A California man who cops say “brutally” punched two women at a hot dog stand has turned himself in after video of the incident went viral, the Los Angeles Police Department tweeted Wednesday.
Arka Sangbarani Oroojian, 30, was booked for assault with a deadly weapon with bail set at $90,000 after surrendering to police late Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Police Department had shared video of the incident online with a plea for help in identifying the man seen hitting the women.
“Attention Los Angeles — this guy brutally punched two women at a hotdog stand on Jan. 26 in the area of 6th & Spring. Someone knows him, and we would like to be one of those people,” police tweeted Tuesday.
According to LAPD Detective Meghan Aguilar, a dispute with the hot dog stand’s vendor allegedly started the incident Saturday evening.
“There was a man that was arguing with the vendor. At that point, one of the women said, ‘Hey, order your hot dog so we can get our food.’ The man immediately turned, punched that woman in the face,” said Aguilar, according to ABC7.
“That punch caused the woman to lose consciousness and she fell to the ground. At that point, her friend did try to intervene and she was punched multiple times by the suspect.”
Both women suffered concussions and went to the hospital, the Los Angeles Times reported. One broke her finger, the newspaper said.
According to police, Oroojian, from Sylmar, California, is 6-foot, 3-inches, and weighs 270 pounds.
In a tweet Wednesday announcing the arrest, the department thanked the community for spreading word about the incident.
It was not immediately clear whether the man has an attorney.
