El Sereno Dispute Escalates Into Hit and Run

By City News Service

Two men were struck by a car occupied by three men with whom they had a fight outside an El Sereno supermarket, police said Monday.

The two victims got into a fight with three other men inside the Food 4 Less store at Huntington Drive and Castalia Avenue at around 11:25 p.m. Sunday, said Sgt. Eddie Ortiz of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.

“The fight carried out into the parking lot,” Ortiz said. There, the three suspects got into a car and struck the two victims.

“The victims are going to be OK; they are expected to survive,” he said, adding that the men were transported to hospitals for treatment of their injuries, which he described as “nothing too severe.”

The suspects fled in their vehicle, Ortiz said. Detectives were at the scene looking for leads and officers were canvassing the area in search of witnesses.

If caught, the suspects could be charged with attempted murder, he said.
