The fight erupted at the Pho Xe Lua Restaurant on Spadina Avenue at approximately 3:30 a.m. Saturday involving several of the restaurant’s patrons.

Investigators are now looking for any information that could lead to the whereabouts or identity of a male, in his 20s, described as muscular with multi-coloured tattoos on his left bicep.
The man can be seen in the video, with short, black hair wearing a tight black t-shirt, black pants and a costume vest emblazoned with the word ‘SWAT’.
