D.C. Police are on the lookout for a man who connected to a possible hate-related assault that occurred at an H Street eatery last weekend.

According to a police report Hill Now obtained, two men and a woman got into an argument “regarding juice” at RedRocks (1348 H St. NE) on May 24 just after 10 p.m.

At some point during the argument, one of the men called the woman a “D-ke B—h” and threw a glass bottle at her, cutting her lip in the process. Both men then left the pizzeria, police said.

Police have released a video of a man possibly connected to the crime. In the video, a man in a T-shirt can be seen walking into the restaurant, then walking through a doorway while talking on his cell phone.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to come forward.
