Rose McGowan says she witnessed someone playing the infamous “Knockout Game” in Venice Beach, Los Angeles on Thursday.

The former “Charmed” star tweeted, “I just witnessed a 65 year old man get punched by an evil guy playing that goddamn knockout game. #criminal #heartbroken #whattheF?!”

McGowan said the puncher was wearing a mask and riding a skateboard. The actress told her Twitter followers she even tried to chase after him, but he was going too fast for her.

McGowan further revealed that the victim was “bleeding from the ear,” so she called an ambulance for him. She says the man’s little dog “tried to protect” him against the attack, but the puncher was too quick.

It’s not known whether police are currently investigating the incident. The “Knockout Game” has been around for years, but has recently resurfaced with a number of attacks from coast to coast. It involves an assailant sucker punching an unsuspecting victim, who is usually too weak to defend him or herself.
