A sketch of the suspect via LASD.
Truly random acts of violence are rare, but they do happen in this big city.
Take the case of a pregnant woman walking down the street in the Charter Oak area of unincorporated Covina yesterday: A man approached from behind, took her to the ground and -- get this -- started kicking, according to cops.
It's possible he didn't know she was with-child, though:
When she yelled that she was pregnant the man fled, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

It happened at 8 a.m. Sunday near Cienega Treanor avenues, according to an LASD statement. It adds:
There is no known motive for this assault.
