Police are investigating whether an incident involving a man punching a woman in the face for no apparent reason is related to the "Knockout Game."
Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department said just after 4:30 p.m. Monday officers responded to a call of an assault and battery in the 14000 block of Blossom Hill Road. Witnesses told police a man confronted a woman in a strip mall parking lot and struck her in the face with a single closed fist.
The victim fell to the ground and sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Manny Singh, who owns the nearby Los Gatos Pizza, said he saw the victim after the incident.
"She was crying. She was crying really bad," he said. "She said she didn't do anything wrong. I don't know what happened to her."
The suspect ran away after the incident and before officers arrived on scene, police said.
Some people at a dance studio located near where the crime occurred are concerned that the attack is connected to a national phenomenon called the "Knockout Game."
The game involves people attempting to knock out unsuspecting victims with a single sucker punch for amusement purposes, according to police. Investigators, however, said they do not have enough evidence to connect the crime to the game.
"There is no specific indication that it is part of the Knockout Game, but again we're not ruling out any of those motives," Sgt. Clinton Tada said.
The suspect is described as an African American adult in his early- to mid-20s, 5 foot 9 inches to 6 feet tall, slender build and short, brown hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a white baseball cap backwards.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department at 408-354-8600.
What are the races of the involved parties?
Eric Holder needs to know so he can file charges or not.
The attacker was black and the victim was white.
The attacker was black and the victim was white.
The poor Trayvon been under whitey's thumb so long he jes had to.
If 0bama had a son..... oh never mind.
Los Gatos is an upscale neighborhood, so the woman probably deserved it for being rich (deeply sarcastic).
No, it's not for "amusement purposes". It's a racially motivated attack.
Don’t you people know there is no such thing as the Knock-out Game? The media debunked it for us. /s
Someone punched her cat?........................
Oh well, then. Holder will be pleased.
Watch as he does not file hate crime charges.
I got punched in the Los Gatos once.
But a woman getting punched there? Must have been one of themn she/she things.
just so you know this is happening away from the slums of the big cities,
Monte Sereno average used house price $2.1 million,
Los Gatos average used house price $1.3 million.
(both full of $$$ contributors to Obama, oddly but true)
and STILL Obama has nothing to say about it............
I’d say it’s about time.
How do you know that?
” . . . get in their faces! . . . “
Yer behind the times. A few days after that, a white guy attacked an older black guy, and all of a sudden, there WAS a Knockout Game.
Eric Holder is even pressing Hate Crimes law on that case.
You know, to show that white people attacking blacks WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
~~~He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a white baseball cap backwards~~~
Wait, that guy has a black baseball cap on backwards, never mind.
Our gangsta _resident.
Good job, American liberals. Major stupidity on display for the whole world to view.
How do you not?
” . . . . going to reward our friends and punish our enemies (whites)” . . .
Exactly my question, as well.
Trayvon, that be you?
Well, I’m not a mind reader. I don’t know the perp, and he didn’t say anything. I’m not saying it wasn’t, but I can’t state for a fact that I know it.
There will be no hate crime charges. The perp can blame it on years of oppression and say he’s just getting back on Whitey. Then the charges will be dropped.
Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES come within 10 feet of someone you do not know ^for any reason^ in an urban setting.
Avoid conversation with any urban person, regardless of skin color. Additionally, do not engage in ANY conversation with ANY urban youth you are not familiar with. Do not allow them to make physical contact!
If you are in the proper jurisdiction, provide a verbal report of your 2A status to any “unknown” you encounter; “I have a weapons permit!”
This was not an urban environment.
I thought the same as you, but I looked up the address of Los Gatos Pizza, and it gives a Los Gatos address. I would have thought San Jose or unincorporated.
I used to have relatives who lived in Los Gatos - a snotty, self-satisfied community of mostly libtards - but I would be shocked if this was perpetrated by a black person...
Northern CA doesn’t have a lot of AAs...thus the smug attitude towards anything about blacks...
Asians and hispanics are another story.
So if you approach a person fitting this description, is it profiling?
When people start shooting them the knockout crap will stop!!
Just read your post after posting mine...
I AM shocked!
I have been in LG, off and on, for over fifteen years...
I’m surprised the City Council didn’t give this guy a key to the city for being a black person in their city limits....wow!
Be polite to everyone you meet - and have a plan to kill every one of them.
Woman Punched in Los Gatos...
Exactly which part of the body is the “Los Gatos”?
Blossom Hill Road is mostly in Los Gatos, actually. The LG city limits go almost (but not quite) up all the way to Camden Avenue, shy by several long blocks. The vast majority of the Los Gatos is east, not west, of Hwy 17.
and yes, a nice neighborhood all of it really.
not your urban slum....
You are right, Bud, so on further thought, this could have been in the gang banger initiation column.
I grew up there when living in Mountain View was frowned upon (it’s now full of multi-million dollar shacks)...most recently, i spent a lot of time in LG.
I can hear the libtard outrage all the way here on the east coast...
“These people are so MISUNDERSTOOD.....”
The article says the perp was ‘african American’.
“Northern CA doesnt have a lot of AAs...”
Have you been to Oakland?
Forgive me...my sense of direction might be screwed up here but as I recall, 17 runs from the Santa Clara valley east and west with LG being on the northern side of 17...at least, that’s how I remember it growing up there from 1963 to 1977....
Yeah, but that’s the east bay and probably the only enclave, next to East Palo Alto, that has a bunch...any other place in No CA has few if any...
I’m talking bodies per area here, ok?
I knew what you meant...just having some fun with you.
I grew up in San Jose.
ROFL I never heard of that body part. Is this something new? Do women only have or do both sexes have it?
Who cares if these assaults were done as a game? We need to see some ass whoopings, self defense shootings and arrests with harsh convictions.
LOL. Thanks for that.
I think you are not fully informed. Alameda County is about 13% black, twice the state average. Contra Costa County is 10%, San Francisco County is 6%. Sacramento County is more than 15%.
How much of each was the perp?
