SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police have released photos of the man accused of badly beating a Pacific Beach bouncer Sunday night.

According to police, four men tried to enter through the side door of a restaurant on the 700 block of Grand Avenue around 9:20 p.m. Sunday when a bouncer told the group they had to use the main entrance.

As a confrontation escalated, police say one of the men picked up a metal crowd barrier pole, hitting the bouncer in his head.

Others in the group then reportedly started fighting with other bouncers at the restaurant before all four men left, according to police.

The bouncer who was hit in the head suffered a skull fracture and brain bleed. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Another bouncer suffered a broken nose and two other staff members suffered some bumps and bruises.

The man suspected of swinging the pole was described as black, in his 30s, 6 feet tall, and 250 pounds with a muscular build. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (858) 552-1714 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
