Anaheim police are looking for three people suspected of beating a 43-year-old man in the Angels Stadium parking lot after Friday's playoff game.

The suspects are all men and beat the victim for no clear reason, Anaheim police told the L.A. Times. Police say they don't think the fight started due to team rivalry or a disagreement that began inside the stadium.

"Right now, we are left wondering why these individuals attacked this victim," Anaheim Police Lt. Robert Dunn told the Times.

"This man started running towards another, and just started beating this guy. He had two punches, the guy went down, he was out cold, and then he started beating his face really bad on the pavement," a witness told ABC 7.
