Los Angeles - On September 14, 2000, at approximately 12:50 a.m., Victim Frank Ha Hong male Korean, 32 years of age, was with four associates (suspects) inside a white Cadillac El Dorado stopped at the intersection of 4th Street and Kenmore Avenue. The suspects allegedly became upset with Hong and began to physically assault him. He escaped through the side window, falling onto the street. The suspects again attacked Hong, kicking and punching him until he was unconscious. The suspects placed Hong into the trunk of their vehicle and drove away.
