LA Now reported:

The Los Angeles Police Department arrested a suspect on suspicion of stealing at CBS TV crew’s camera during coverage of Trayvon Martin protests Saturday night in Leimert Park.

Police said a man claiming to have a gun took the camera from a KCBS-TV crew. Officials said the camera has since been recovered and returned to the station.

On Tuesday, a reporter and cameraman for CBS2/KCAL9 were attacked in the Crenshaw district by rogue protesters who broke off from a peaceful demonstration at Leimert Park, police said Tuesday.

Reporter Dave Bryan was interviewing Joseph Degurre, 43, about 10 p.m. Monday when, the video shows, Bryan was hit in the back of the head by the cameraman’s camera. The attackers then ran off, witnesses said.

“He pushed the camera guy down and the camera guy went down, the camera went down, David went down,” Degurre told The Times after the incident.

Video at the scene captured two men running off into the darkness.
