Video: Car Dealership Owner Attacked

Posted: Updated:

The owner of a Miami car dealership brutally attacked on camera. Police have the suspect's accomplice in custody but she's not talking. FOX's Jennifer Bisram has the story.

Police said the attack happened Jan. 14, at around 5:50 p.m., at the Ban Kars Car Dealership located at 333 N.W. 79th St. in Miami.

"All of a sudden, he just gave me a punch, and that knocked me unconscious. I really didn't know what was going," the dealership owner who wanted to remain anonymous told WSVN. "When I woke up, somebody was taking care of me. I was taken in an ambulance to the hospital. I really wasn't very much aware of what was going on."

While he was knocked out unconscious, a man who came in with one of his customers started kicking his stepson who had tried to run to his stepfather's aid.

Surveillance cameras at the dealership captured the attack after an argument had ensued between the owner and the man who was with the customer, Zsa Zsa Chantel Brown, who police said had issues with a car title of a vehicle she had purchased from the dealership months earlier.

"This woman had purchased this vehicle four months prior," said Miami Police spokesperson Freddie Cruz. "Now she comes four months later, she has a dispute over the title, her name is not on it. This is something that could have been resolved."

Instead, police said, she brought a friend who brutally beat two men on her behalf and calmly walked away.

Surveillance video shows the owner getting attacked and punched. He then drops to the ground. When the owner's stepson tried to intervene, he was assaulted by the man and struck several times. The suspect and Brown are then seen leaving the business.

"We did arrest Mrs. Brown since then," said Cruz. "However, Mrs. Brown is being very uncooperative. She is not telling us who this individual is. We are hoping the community seeing this today recognizes that individual."

A picture of the owner shows him in a hospital bed. He said he had to get several stitches. Since then he has sold his business and moved away for the safety of his family. "I wasn't born in this country," said the owner. "One of the reasons I came to do business in the United States is because I thought it provided much better warranties for personal safety."

Miami Police describe the suspect as a black male, standing six feet four inches tall and weighing about 250 pounds. He is said to have a goatee and was last seen wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans and beige boots.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of this suspect, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
