Arrest Made After Couple Attacked At Elton John Concert In Dodger Stadium

A couple in their 60s was allegedly attacked and beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the November 17 Elton John concert.

LAPD have arrested a suspect in connection with the incident, which reportedly occurred after a car accident and verbal altercation.

Police say the husband exited his car and was soon after attacked by multiple individuals.

Cell phone videos taken from individuals surrounding the incident showed at least one man shove the husband to the floor, with a second man throwing a punch while the husband was on the ground.

The couple’s daughter, who identified herself simply as Nicole, said the incident was not part of a car accident, but instead a woman walking by and striking the car’s side mirror.

After the husband got out of his car to figure out who struck his car, the woman allegedly yelled “I did.” Nicole said the woman attempted to hit her father, before a group of men joined and started hitting him.

“Many people witnessed and recorded, but no one helped them,” Nicole said in a social media post. “They were left unconscious on the ground and security failed to help them.”

Nicole went on to say that her father was hospitalized with head injuries, but her mother faced minimal injuries and was released from the hospital that same night.

The concert was the first of three at Dodger Stadium, which were the final shows for the North American leg of Elton John’s farewell tour.
