Baltimore County Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect in the brutal beating of a man in Dundalk on January 27.

The victim, a 31-year-old man from the Dundalk area, suffered extensive internal and external injuries to his head, face, and torso when he was attacked on the parking lot of the Wok and Roll Chinese restaurant in the 7700 block of Westfield Road around 9:45 p.m. that Friday night. He was hospitalized for 3 days at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma and has no recollection of the events surrounding the incident.

The investigation into the incident reveals that the victim was speaking with a white female sitting in the passenger seat of what is believed to be a silver SUV, possibly a Jeep Liberty or Jeep Compass or similar type vehicle. At that time, a black male exited the Wok and Roll restaurant, approached the victim, and without prompting began striking him in the face and head repeatedly. He threw the victim to the ground and began kicking him. The suspect then re-entered the Wok and Roll restaurant and attempted to place an order. The female in the silver SUV moved into the driver seat and began honking the horn until the suspect exited the restaurant and got into the passenger side of the vehicle, at which time they fled the scene.

Anyone with information on this case or this suspect is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.
