California man turns himself in after knocking woman out

A muscular man who cold-cocked a woman outside a supermarket in Los Angeles last month has turned himself in, police officials told The Post.

Michael Fino, 44, surrendered to police on Tuesday, nine days after a surveillance camera caught him punching a woman to the ground outside Windward Farms on Windward Avenue in Venice Beach. He was booked on felony battery charges, LAPD Officer Aareon Jefferson said.

Bail was set for Fino at $165,000. He has a court date set for next month, said Jefferson, adding that no additional information was available.

In the surveillance video, which was taken at about 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 25, a woman who had a disagreement earlier that day with Fino exits the supermarket. He then turns around and throws a vicious right-hand, knocking the woman instantly.

Witnesses immediately tried to subdue Fino, including one man who put him in a headlock before jumping on his back. But Fino managed to break free and ran away.
