ATLANTA -- Authorities have arrested a man accused of hitting a woman at Historic Fourth Ward Park.

According to Atlanta Police, two women were playing with their children in the playground and skate park area when Louis Rivera approached two of the girls and asked them to leave. 

He reportedly told them they needed to find somewhere else to play because his pit bulls were there first. The women said the dogs had been off leash and were jumping on the children.

One of the women began recording the man with her cell phone. She captured him hitting her hand and knocking the phone to the ground.

Anyone with information on the incident or suspect is asked to call police at (404) 373-5331 or Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-8477.
