ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 24, 2022) – Anaheim Police investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in an unprovoked assault.

On Thursday, March 3rd, 2022 a male adult employee of the Anaheim Central Library was assaulted in an unprovoked attack that was captured on surveillance video. At about 6:15 p.m., the employee walked through the library when he approached the suspect. Without provocation, the suspect stepped into the path of the victim before striking him one time. The victim fell backward and struck his head on the tile ground causing him to lose consciousness and suffer a laceration to the back of his head that required transportation and treatment at a local area hospital.

The suspect is described as a light skinned black male, late 20’s to early 30’s, tall, with a thin muscular build, about 200 pounds with short hair or possibly bald, and a mustache. The suspect was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with red drawstrings, light brown pants, white shoes and an LA Dodgers baseball cap. The suspect was carrying numerous clothing items in bags and may be transient.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is urged to call Anaheim PD Investigator Chemaly at 714-765-1583 or OC Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS.
