LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) Witnesses said a man crashed his vehicle into the front of a restaurant Sunday afternoon after he allegedly aimed the vehicle at his girlfriend.

There were no injuries reported, authorities said.

Authorities were called to the restaurant located at 345 N. LaBrea Avenue in the Fairfax District around 3:30 p.m., said Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

A worker at the East India Grill said the restaurant was open at the time of the crash with minor damage limited to a patio area where no one was seated when the vehicle slammed into it.

Some tables were smashed, the employee said.

While police did not confirm the suspect was trying to hit his girlfriend, witness Gem Aggabao said she heard screeching tires and a woman screaming that her boyfriend was driving the car.

According to Aggabao, the woman said she had argued with her boyfriend at a gas station and he threatened her when she started to leave the area.

Police said no arrests were made as there was insufficient evidence to suggest he intentionally tried to hit the woman.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division is investigating the cause of the crash.
