Kim Pham: Woman brain dead, on life support as another arrested in beating

See also

Kim Pham is a 23-year-old that unfortunately won't be able to experience any more in life due to a severe beating she suffered this past weekend. The LA Times reported late on Jan. 20, 2014, that a woman has indeed been arrested in the beating, but Pham has been declared brain dead and is still on life support.

The beating happened outside of the Crosby night club in Santa Ana, California, on Saturday night and four other people are being sought in connection with the incident.

Kim Pham was hit, kicked, and stomped on after an argument broke out between two groups of people. It is not believed that the two groups knew each other and there is no word on what started the fight.

Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, a police spokesman said, “She was kicked and punched to the point that she was unconscious when officers arrived.” He added that detectives in Santa Ana had made an arrest early Monday, using video apparently taken by a bystander.

The female that was arrested is in her twenties and was brought in on suspicions of assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily harm. The four others being sought are two men and two women. The woman that has been arrested will not have her name released by police until the four others have been found.

An eight-second video has been posted online, but it only shows a violent scrum. Police are still searching for other witnesses to help give more information.
