suspect sought in toronto chinatown restaurant brawl

Asians behaving badly... restaurant brawl edition! In Toronto, police are looking for the people -- specifically, one guy who threw a plate -- involved in a fight that broke out early Sunday morning at the Pho Xe Lua restaurant in Chinatown: Chinatown Pho restaurant fight: Plates fly as brawl breaks out.

The late-night brawl, which was captured on video that has since gone viral, involves a lot of shoving, some punching and someone throwing a plate that gets broken squarely on a woman's face. In the middle of it all, a restaurant waitress valiantly trying to break it up to no avail.

Warning, this video contains profanity and violence:

Yes, that is, ironically, a guy in a SWAT costume who threw the plate. Aside from the waitress, all I see is a bunch of people acting like fools -- that includes all the asshole onlookers cheering.

Police are looking for "a light-skinned Asian male suspect described as having a muscular build, 20 to 25 years of age, 5'8 to 5'9, clean-shaven, with short black hair that is shaved on all sides."

Anyone with information, video or still images of the fight is asked to call police at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS. More here: Fight at Toronto Chinatown restaurant Pho Xe Lua goes viral.
