    One woman was arrested and Miami Police are looking for a man who was involved in a violent attack on a car dealership employee that was caught on camera.

    The incident happened back on Jan. 14 at the Ban Kars Car Dealership at 333 Northwest 79th Street, Miami Police said.

    According to Police, Zsa Zsa Chantel Brown, 27, and the other suspect went to the dealership over an ossue with the title for a vehicle she had purchased from the victim, Ruben Mirelman. The victim says, the friend who she brought with began confronting him about another issue.

    "He was complaining that the horn wasn't working and I was trying to explain to him, listen, we sold the car 90 days ago as-is," Mirelman said.

    Then, things quickly became physical.

    "All of a sudden this guy knocked me off," Mirelman said. "I don't remember if I woke up in the ambulance or in the hospital."

    Another employee who tried to intervene was also attacked by the suspect who struck him several times, police said. That second victim is Mirelman's step-son. Once that man is also on the ground, the woman is seen grabbing a sheet of paper from the desk and then both left the business.

    Mirelman was found laying in a pool of blood when police arrived and later received four stitches to his chin and 12 staples to the back of his head, police said. He has since sold the business for the safety of his family.

    "It's not worth it," Mirelman said. "The busines was going well. We moved out."

    Brown was later arrested and charged with obstructing justice and principal aggravated battery. She has not cooperated with police to help identify the attacker. Police say she claims she had only gone out to lunch with him a few times and that she did not know him well. Police do not think she has been forthcoming.

    The suspect is described as a black male, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, with a goatee. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
