A road rage incident where a man had his head slammed into a sidewalk has led to the Los Angeles Police Department asking for the public's help to identify the suspect, seen in the video above.

During a traffic dispute on May 26, a man picked up another and slammed him onto a sidewalk, according to an LAPD release. The victim's head hit the ground and he was knocked unconscious, and the other man followed up by slamming his head into the sidewalk several times.

The suspect then walked to his car, which was double parked, got in and fled, according to the release. The fight happened at 4th Street and Ardmore Avenue.

The victim's skull was fractured, and he also had internal bleeding, according to the release. He's currently receiving physical therapy and says that he can't recall what happened to him.

Police are asking that anyone with information call Police Officer III S. Lee in the Asian Crime Unit at (213) 486-4762, 1-877-LAPD-24-7 outside of business hours, or 1-800-222-TIPS if they want to remain anonymous. Those who want to leave an anonymous tip can also text 274637 (CRIMES), with texts starting with the letters LAPD, or go online to LAPDOnline.org and click on "webtips."
