The video appears to show a male assailant initially running through a shopping center on the 3600 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard, in the area of the Bellagio, toward a woman. As he closes in, the camera cuts away for a brief moment.
Once it refocuses on the incident, the alleged attacker is on the ground and being struck multiple times by the woman he tried to attack.
Seconds later, an unidentified male — who, according to the video’s title, may be the woman’s boyfriend — enters the scene and kicks the alleged assailant near his face.
“You just hit her bro,” he says, as the woman continues to beat the man and multiple bystanders begin to flood the scene.
One bystander moves forward and the unidentified male repeats, “He just hit her man!”
“Yeah, he did,” echoes one bystander.
“He just hit her,” adds the cameraman.
“Oh s***. Dude he’s f***in—,” the cameraman continues. “His nose is bleeding dude. Oh my gosh.”
The video ends with a bystander tending to the alleged assailant who was still on the ground.
According to Hadfield, it appeared the crime depicted in the video is a misdemeanor battery charge, punishable by 6 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
Nevertheless, police said the victim does not want to prosecute and no serious injuries were reported.
