Quirk said the suspect came up behind the two victims and knocked them down on the ground in an unprovoked attack. Surveillance footage shows the man turning around and kicking one of the victims in the face before running off.

Both victims were taken to the hospital following the attack.

OKCPD identified the suspect as Hartico in the investigation, and arrested the 33-year-old on two counts of assault and battery, and aggravated assault and battery shortly after the attack occurred.

In an update to the ‘X’ post, OKCPD says Hartico has several previous convictions and is currently on probation for burglary and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
