Jennifer González appeared in front of the media this week to ask for help from the community and find the whereabouts of those who left her father in a coma.

“My father is one of the most hardworking, gentle and generous people,” said the young woman from the Infiniti car dealership in Van Nuys, where her father works.

Authorities said in a statement that the incident that left the 46-year-old man, whose name has not been revealed, occurred on January 1 around 9:30 p.m., after an altercation of rage at the wheel – a term known in English as road rage.

"The victim was in his vehicle, stopped in a red light, heading south on Woodman Avenue on Victory Boulevard," explained the Los Angeles Police (LAPD) of the Van Nuys Division.

He added that the suspects' vehicle had traveled dangerously on the road, heading south on Woodman Avenue and subsequently placed behind the victim's vehicle.

For some reason, which is still unknown, both the victim and the suspects got out of their vehicles and the dispute began.

A video recorded by a driver passing through the place shows how Jennifer's father confronts the men, who the authorities identified as Armenians between 20 and 30 years old.

One of the suspects, hits the head of the Latin man hard causing him to bounce on the ground and leaving him unconscious.

Afterwards, it is seen that the group returns to their vehicle and flees southbound on Woodman Avenue.

“My father is currently in an induced coma and suffers a severe head trauma,” Jennifer in a GoFundMe donation account she opened just three days ago to pay for her loved one's hospital expenses. "It is unknown if he can wake up or recover from this situation soon."

Van Nuys' Infiniti agency, in response to the victim's appreciation of who has been in the place for 15 years as an employee, offered a reward of $ 15,000 for those who help find the suspects.

The young woman, like her two brothers and the victim's co-workers, identified him as a cheerful, hardworking and kind man.

“I didn't deserve this at all. He always puts everyone's needs first, before his own, ”said his daughter. "Those who know him, know that my dad is the kind of person you can count on for anything."

Authorities said whoever has information on the case can contact the Van Nuys division detective, R. Secor at 1 (818) 374-0062 or 1 (877) 527-3247). If you wish to remain anonymous you can contact LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477 or visit:

What should you do in a case of driving rage?

The authorities explain that when there is a case of driving rage (or road rage) it is difficult to accept who was at fault. For this reason they share the following warnings to avoid being another victim:

  • Do not argue with the other driver, or get out of your vehicle.
  • If you notice that a driver is following you, don't go home. Drive to the nearest police or fire station.
  • It is preferable to let the other driver pass, if you see that he is in a hurry.
  • Avoid wanting to take revenge on the road.
  • Do not let the actions of others affect your composure while driving.
  • When the rage at the wheel occurs, nobody wins. Avoid it.
