The Hells Angels are all over the news these days. First, they sued a Silver Lake clothing company for its quaint repurposing of their name, and now four members of the gang's San Diego chapter are being sought by law enforcement for their involvement in beatings that took place in 2007 and 2010 .The LA Times reports that the four men -- David Dabbs, 41; Dustin Harroun, 30; Stephen Sanders, 42, and Troy Scholder, 30 -- took part in assaults on a club member and a club associate in El Cajon. The assaults apparently included stealing the victims' motorcycles.

According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Dabbs is also wanted in connection to the beating of a rival gang member in June of this year. That attack, which happened at the Konocti Vista Casino in Lake County, also involved four members of the gang. The paper reports that Dabbs is also wanted in connection with a kidnapping and torture case in San Diego.

Officials believe that the four men suspected of taking part in the 2007 and 2010 attacks may flee to Mexico. Anyone with information can leave an anonymous tip at (888) 580-8477, and a $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
