During a press conference, Police Chief Charlie Beck showed a photo of a black male suspect, 30 to 35 years old, who appeared to be walking with an object in his hand near the scene of the attack.  Beck said that the man “is a danger to the public” and urged anyone with information about the crime to come forward as soon as possible.

The video footage shows the alleged suspect moments after the confrontation on the opposite side of Venice Boulevard, opposite of the Wilshire Transportation Station walking at a brisk pace.
