Post Date:04/25/2023 8:13 pm


The Newport Beach Police Department would like to thank the members of the media and public who have assisted us in this search. The witness listed below was in contact with our investigators within hours of the initial press release and we greatly appreciate his willingness to assist in this case.

We believe there are additional unknown witnesses who saw this physical fight (or the events immediately preceding it) whom we have not yet been able to contact. The investigation remains open and ongoing, and we encourage any additional witnesses to contact Detective R. Stucken of the Crimes Against Persons Unit at 949-644-3797. 


On Saturday, April 22 at approximately 1:40 a.m., a physical fight occurred in the parking lot at 3101 Newport Boulevard in Newport Beach. During the follow-up investigation, detectives learned of a potential witness who may be able to provide additional information.

Witness description: white male wearing a black baseball cap, long-sleeve heather-gray “Jack’s Surfboards” crew-neck sweatshirt, and blue jeans

The witness was not involved in the fight, but he may have observed the incident as it unfolded and may be able to provide pertinent information to investigators. The Newport Beach Police Department has been unable to identify the man and is asking for the public’s assistance to locate and contact him. Anyone with information that can assist us in this case is asked to contact Detective R. Stucken of the Crimes Against Persons Unit at 949-644-3797.
