An arrest has been made in a brutal beating in Hollywood that left a man apparently unconscious on the Walk of Fame.

Video of the early Monday morning attack drew attention on social media and TMZ, and the Los Angeles Police Department said in a news release that officers responded to that reported altercation in the 6700 block of Hollywood Boulevard and found “a severely injured male victim.”

The victim, who has not been identified, was treated for several injuries at a local hospital, police added.

On Wednesday, police arrested Hollywood resident Jorge Luiz Garcia, 27, on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, police said in a news release.

According to the LAPD, Garcia pepper-sprayed the other man, knocked him to the ground and “continued to punch the victim while he was lying unconscious on the ground, resulting in severe injuries to the victim.”

The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for the filing of possible charges.

This arrest did not appear in a search of jail records.
