Disclosure: Graphic video

An older couple attending Elton John's Los Angeles concert at Dodger Stadium Thursday night was beaten upon leaving the stadium parking lot, with one suspect arrested Sunday. 

The couple, Lillian and Jamie, both in their 60s, were reportedly in their car exiting the Dodger Stadium parking lot when they heard a loud thud, the couple's daughter Nicole Renteria told Fox 11. 

"A group of people walked around their car and they both heard this loud bang and someone had hit my dad's mirror on his Tahoe," she told the local outlet.

Renteria said her father then proceeded to exit their vehicle thinking the mirror had fallen off and asked the group of about six individuals, "Who hit my mirror?" One woman reportedly claimed responsibility and proceeded to swing at Jamie, per witnesses at the scene. Her father attempted to block the blow.

Jamie told CBS Los Angeles a man shown wearing a blue shirt in the video then proceeded to kick and punch him. 

"I realized ‘I can’t take this guy, he's too big,'" Jamie. "So, I went down, covered up and he's hitting me, hitting me."

Jamie's wife Lillian remained in the car during the first part of the incident as she was unaware of what was going on. She told CBS Los Angeles that she saw "a pile of people on top of my husband." She then got out of the car and, when she bent down to help her husband, someone pulled her hair from behind.

"I felt like I was rammed and thrown and my head hit the pavement and so I blacked out," she told the outlet.
