CCTV captured some young punk beating an elderly man with a cane.
Police are now searching for the perpetrator who attacked the 91-year-old with seemingly no motive. The CCTV footage shows the perp, somewhere between 20 to 30 years of age, walking along the pavement before he kicks over the victims shopping car then takes a swing at his head.
NYPD officers say the assault occurred in the neighborhood of Inwood in Manhattan around 5:55pm.
The victim was taken to the hospital with cuts and is considered in serious but stable condition. The victim is well known and liked in his neighborhood.
Passersby are briefly stunned by the sudden assault, but one Good Samaritan quickly jumps in to try and break up the fight.
The suspect is described as between 20 and 30 years old, dark-skinned, and around 5’10” and 150 pounds.
He is seen on the video wearing headphones over a blue Yankees baseball cap, a black T-shirt over a gray long-sleeved shirt, pajama bottoms with checker box print and black sneakers.
