A Los Angeles man was critically injured after being tossed into the street and pinned beneath a commercial vehicle this week- and now the suspect believed to be responsible is in custody.
LAPD shared footage of the incident, which was taken around 10:45 AM on Wednesday. In the video, the victim can be seen walking down the sidewalk when a man -who was seated on a nearby bench- lunged towards the victim, tossing him into oncoming traffic.
The victim was instantly struck by the truck, which spent around 10 seconds under the tire before the driver took corrective action.
Suffering a collapsed lung and broken bones, the victim -described as an elderly Armenian man- was rushed to the hospital. While he is in bad shape, he is expected to survive the deadly encounter.
According to KTLA, the manhunt for the lime green hoodie-wearing suspect lasted several hours, but the man was finally detained. He is reported to be a homeless individual and is has since been booked on suspicion of attempted murder.
