Police in Fairfield, Cali. are searching for a suspect after a disabled man was assaulted during a confrontation over an accessible parking spot.

Witnesses told police that on Sept. 14 they saw the suspect and the 64-year-old victim get into an altercation over a parking lot spot outside of a local Walmart.

It’s believed the suspect and the woman he was with parked in the spot the victim needed, so he confronted them.

That’s when things turned physical.

“[The suspect]…got the guy out of the car and slammed him on the ground,” Chris Bennett, another witness, told KCRA. “I was able to get between them.”
