Suspect caught on video allegedly assaulting driver in parking lot dispute: Hamilton police

WATCH: Hamilton police are looking for a suspect who allegedly assaulted another man in parking lot dispute. Police say the suspect got out of a car, walked to a mini-van and allegedly hit the 64 year old driver in the face, before speeding off with a female accomplice.

Security camera footage from a parking lot in a mountain shopping plaza shows a 64-year-old man driving a minvan being assaulted during a ‘right of way’ dispute.

Hamilton police are still looking for the suspect, who they suspect to be in his mid-20s, that allegedly attacked another man on Friday, June 6, 2019.

The incident reportedly happened shortly after 4:30 p.m. in the Mountain Plaza Mall at 659 Upper James Street.

The video shows the minivan driver attempting to leave a parking lane and cutting off a sedan that appeared to be backing out of a parking spot.

A man is then seen getting out of the passenger seat of the sedan and walking over to the driver-side window of the van, which was attempting a left turn.

The suspect then seems to open the van’s driver-side door and pulls out the 64-year-old, who he allegedly punches several times.

The minivan driver suffered serious facial injuries, according to police.
