Chula Vista Police released surveillance photos Wednesday in an effort to identify and locate a man who beat two women with an aluminum baseball bat during a fight outside a bar.

The suspect apparently struck both women in the head during a brawl involving several other people in front of the On the Rocks Bar at 656 E St. on Oct. 15, according to Chula Vista Police.

One victim sustained a laceration that required stitches and the other suffered “debilitating” skull fractures and needed rehabilitation, police said.

Police described the suspect as a 25- to 35-year-old Hispanic male with distinctive tattoos on the right side of his neck and on his right forearm.

Anyone with information on the case was asked to call police at (619) 409-5487 or (619) 691-5151. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or by contacting the agency online at
