DENVER, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Denver would like the public’s help identifying two people involved in a vehicular assault that started as a fight over a parking spot at a Walmart.
“Especially at Walmart, you shouldn’t be doing stuff like that,” said Walmart shopper Donnie Martinez.
Police say the assault occurred on Aug. 3 in the parking lot of the Walmart located at 2770 West Evans Avenue.
Surveillance video shows fists flying in the parking lot moments before a man is run over by a car.
During the fight the female suspect drove an SUV, possibly a Chevy Suburban with custom rims and hit the man. As the victim falls, the other man in a red hat yells at the crowd then jumps into the SUV and speeds away.
Investigators said the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“We believe it was over a parking space. Maybe one space was sticking out too far. Some sort of something. Something unnecessary,” said Denver Police spokeswoman Christine Downs.
Investigators are not sure of the couple’s relationship but said they were together. The woman had been inside the Walmart with a child just minutes earlier.
“You expect to just go to the grocery store, come do your shopping and go home. You don’t ever expect to see a big fight like that,” said Martinez. “Just let it go. It’s not worth getting hurt in the end.”
The suspects face charges of assault and possibly hit-and-run.
The victim has been released from the hospital.
