A courageous Hollywood restaurant owner chased down and held a homeless scoundrel who robbed an elderly citizen

A brave restaurant owner in Hollywood chased down and spectacularly restrained a homeless thug who assaulted an elderly man before taking his wallet and cell phone.

The victim, thought to be in his 70s, was seated outside a Los Angeles dining facility on August 1 eating Raffallo’s Pizza when a homeless man abruptly punched him in the face and ribs, according to video evidence.

Shin, the proprietor of a Japanese restaurant, was sitting nearby with his girlfriend when he observed the fight and hurried to capture 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.’

Ratcliff's girl friend, who wasn't identified, rushed to to help the restaurant owner. She stomped and kicked on the thief as he attempted to loosen from Ratcliff's grip

The confrontation between Ratcliff and the homeless man took place at the intersection of La Brea and Hollywood.

Ratcliff immediately tackled the unknown robber to the ground as his girlfriend ran to assist. She then stepped on the homeless guy before retrieving the elderly man’s phone and wallet and returned them to him.

Blood may be visible on the face of the homeless man as he sought to escape Ratcliff’s grasp by blindly biting his arm.

Until cops arrive minutes later, bystanders stroll and drive by using their mobile phone cameras.

According to Ratcliff, the elderly man had bruises and was transported to the hospital. The courageous restaurant owner will testify in court on August 16.

Ratcliff said, “Hopefully everything goes well and he gets to stay in jail for a long time.”

In July, a homeless man brandishing a metal rod assaulted an Olympic silver medallist in Los Angeles. On August 1, a homeless man attacked an elderly man.

Volleyball player Kim Glass, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall, posted photos of her bleeding nose and eye after being randomly attacked in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old woman said that the assailant was behaving abnormally before to attacking her.

The native of Los Angeles, however, reassured followers that despite the horrific slashes across her skull, she was well after receiving stitches.

Glass described how, before to the awful incident, she was leaving lunch and waving goodbye to her companions.

She said that the homeless guy had something in his hand and was standing on the other side of a parked automobile.

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 that she was ready to tell her buddy that she believed something was wrong with him and that he may strike a vehicle.

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 said afterwards that she was well after receiving sutures, and that there was no lasting harm to her eyesight.

The assaults occur in the midst of a crime epidemic spreading throughout the city, which tens of thousands assert is caused by the vigilant district attorney.

George Gascon has been attacked for his lenient attitude to crime, since dangerous criminals have been released from prison early and some have not been incarcerated at all.

The Los Angeles Registrar County Office said on Monday that 195,783 of the more than 700,000 signatures received were invalid, rendering the second effort to recall the district attorney unsuccessful.

The petition needed 566,857 valid signatures, but only 520,050 were validated.
