Mount Washington Man Arrested for Committing Assault with a Vehicle
By EGP Staff
Louis Mraz was taken into custody July 6 by LAPD officers and charged with assault and hit and run.
On May 28, 2011, Los Angeles resident Winona Wacker was riding her bicycle northbound on Avenue 50 when Mraz hit her, according to police. A witness told police Mraz had room on the roadway to pass and he saw Mraz intentionally strike the victim. The witness followed Mraz and was able to get the vehicle’s license plate number.
Mraz claims that as he drove away, he saw the cyclist still riding her bike.
Mraz was booked at the Metropolitan Detention Center, later posted bond and was released. Central Traffic Division detectives are conducting the investigation.
