Assault with a Deadly Weapon Suspect Sought NR18111dm

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Street Division are seeking the public's assistance in identifying an ADW with a Vehicle suspect.
On April 11, 2018, around 1:05 pm, an ADW with a vehicle occurred at the intersection of Manchester Avenue and Normandie Avenue in the city of Los Angeles. A group of bicyclists had gathered at the intersection to bring attention to the hit-and-run death of their friend, and fellow cyclist, the previous day. The gathering stopped the flow of traffic through the intersection. The suspect attempted to drive her vehicle into the intersection, at which time, an argument started between the suspect and a female bicyclist. The argument quickly escalated into a brief physical altercation. The suspect re-entered her vehicle and drove eastbound on Manchester Ave, conducted a U-turn, then drove westbound at a high rate of speed. The suspect struck a male bicyclist, standing in the intersection, with her vehicle and fled.

The suspect is described as a 25-30-year-old female Black. She stands around 5 feet tall and weighs around 120 pounds. The suspect was wearing a multi-colored head scarf, white top and multi-colored tights. She had a nose ring and a tattoo on the left side of her stomach.

The vehicle the suspect was driving is in police custody.
