Isaias Arroyo, 23, went to detectives at the Santa Ana Police Department and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The assault took place at around 8:45 p.m. on February 2, when a fight broke out in the parking lot of the Spoons Bar and Grill, located at 2601 Hotel Terrace.

The restaurant manager attempted to stop the brawl, when a man inside the bar ran out and hit the manager in the head with a bottle of beer, Santa Ana police said.

The man then took a seat in the passenger seat of a dark-colored Jeep Cherokee, which left the scene.

The victim, also a man, ended up with lacerations to the head and needed staples.

Police released a video Thursday showing different angles of the assailant and the assault.

Arroyo apparently saw the reports of the assault and was forced to surrender, police said.

The motive for the attack remains unknown, but investigators believe the assailant believed the victim was involved in the fight and was protecting his friend (s).

No further details of the incident or the arrest were released on Friday.
