Police are searching for a man in a purple shirt that viciously attacked a 75-year-old man buying tickets last month at the counter of a gas station store in Philadelphia.
The incident was captured on the store's surveillance video, and the Philadelphia Police Department's Central Detectives are releasing it publicly in hopes of identifying the assailant.
According the police, the attack occurred at 5:45 p.m. Sept. 18 inside the Getty Gas Station convenience store on the 2400 block of North Broad Street in North Philadelphia.
The video shows the victim purchasing lottery tickets when a large male attacks him from behind and sucker punches him on the right side of the face, causing him to fall on the floor. The suspect then continues to attack the victim by punching and kicking him while he's down.
