Author: Yuvi August 16, 2022


A heroic Hollywood restaurant owner chased down and dramatically constrained a homeless scumbag that beat an elderly man before stealing his wallet and phone.

The man, believed to be in his 70s, was sitting outside a dining complex on August 1 enjoying a meal from Raffallo’s Pizza in Los Angeles when the homeless man suddenly punched him in his face and ribs, surveillance footage shows.

Nearby, the owner of the Japanese cuisine joint, Shin, was eating with his girlfriend when he witnessed the altercation and hastened to chase down the man.

‘We were shocked that it happened, and then I started running after him,’ Shin owner Tim Ratcliff told DailyMail.com. ‘As I rounded the corner, he turned around, and sucker punched me.’

‘I tackled him to the ground and held him there until the police arrived.’

The homeless man can be seen with a bloody face as he attempted to escape Ratcliff’s grip while aimlessly reaching to bite his arm.

Bystanders walked and drove by with their cell phone cameras until police arrive minutes later.

Ratcliff says the elderly man suffered from bruises and was taken to the hospital. The brave restaurant owner will appear in court on August 16 to testify.

‘Hopefully everything goes really well and he gets to stay in jail for a long time,’ Ratcliff said.

The August 1 attack of the elderly man comes a few months after an Olympic silver medalist star was attacked in Los Angeles by a homeless man wielding a metal pole in July.

Kim Glass, a 6ft 3in volleyball player, shared shots of her bloody nose and eye after being randomly jumped in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old said the thug was acting strangely before running up to her and battering her in the face

But the LA native reassured fans that despite the ghastly cuts across her head she was okay after being stitched up.

Glass told how she had been leaving lunch and saying goodbye to her friends before the horrific attack.

She said the ‘homeless man ran-up, he had something in his hand and he was on the other side of a car on the street.’

The Sports Illustrated model and star of the US women’s volleyball team said the attacker looked at her ‘with some pretty hateful eyes.’

Glass said she had been about to turn to her friend to say she thought there was something wrong with him and that he might hit a car.

She continued: ‘Before I knew it, a big metal bolt, like a pipe, hit me… it happened so fast. He literally flung it from the street.’

Glass later said she was okay after having stitches but there would be no permanent damage to her vision.

The attacks come amid a crime wave sweeping across the city that hundreds of thousands warn is being driven by the woke county district attorney.

George Gascon has been criticized for his liberal approach to crime, with violent offenders being let out of jail early and others not even being locked up.

A second attempt to recall the woke district attorney failed after 195,783 of the more than 700,000 signatures submitted were invalid, the Los Angeles Registrar County Office released on Monday.

The petition required 566,857 valid signatures, but only 520,050 were found to be valid.
