California Cops Arrest Thug, 21, Seen Assaulting Defenseless Woman In Vile Viral Video
10/14 UPDATE: Cops ID, release photo of second suspect being sought
California cops today arrested one of the men seen in a viral video committing an unprovoked assault on a 42-year-old Sacramento woman.
Rasaan Zawadi, 21, was busted after the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office obtained an arrest warrant charging him with assault with a “gang enhancement.” A police spokesman noted that detectives believe that the October 1 attack was somehow gang related.
Zawadi, seen in the above mug shot, is the first man seen striking the woman in the video (see below), which was first posted Tuesday afternoon to the Worldstar Hip Hop web site. Cops are continuing to search for a second suspect, who is seen at the tail end of the 1:51 clip flooring the confused woman with a vicious roundhouse left.
Investigators believe the incriminating video was posted by the suspects. As TSG first reported, when the clip was first uploaded, Worldstar reported that it was submitted by “Dylan G The Kid.” But once the video began to go viral (and was picked up by other hip-hop sites), the credit was abruptly changed to “Rhekidd.”
Sacramento police have asked anyone with information about the assault to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357.
