So much for turning the other cheek.
San Diego police are on the lookout for a Halloween reveler dressed as Jesus Christ, whom they say sucker-punched one of their own during a 1 a.m. donnybrook that landed the officer in the hospital, according to ABC 10.
The cheap shot reportedly occurred while police were trying to break-up a fight in the town’s popular Gaslamp Quarter early Thursday morning. Police did stumble upon a reveler dressed as Jesus during their search for the assailant, but it wasn’t the same guy.
The unidentified officer was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for a one-inch facial laceration, according to the Times of San Diego. That report said the blow may have also come from the perp’s elbow while cops were trying to execute an arrest at a southern California bar.
The free-swinging assailant remains on the loose. Police are asking for the public’s help in finding the man. He is not expected to be forgiven.
