Yesterday, the four Bird Rock
Prosecutors filed new charges yesterday against four men accused of fatally beating a professional surfer from La Jolla...
The latest charges include several assaults, which prosecutors said occurred before the May 24 attack on Emery Kauanui Jr., and allegations that the men are members of a gang known as the Bird Rock Bandits.
Seth Cravens, 21; Eric House, 20; Orlando Osuna, 22; and Matthew Yanke, 21 – all of whom were present at a brief hearing in San Diego Superior Court – now face charges that include murder, assault and battery. The four pleaded not guilty yesterday. If convicted, they could be sent to prison for life.

Judge John S. Einhorn issued an arrest warrant for a fifth man, Henri Quinn-William Hendricks, 21, whom prosecutors have charged with murder, assault and battery. Hendricks was not arrested immediately after the beating, but gave a statement on his involvement to police May 29.
Hendricks said that as House and Kauanui fought, he pushed away Kauanui's girlfriend, who had started kicking House.
I haven't been able to find a photo of Henri Quinn, but based on his name, I'd say he looks a little like this:
