Police in California are looking for two teenagers who were caught on video assaulting and robbing an 80-year-old Asian man over the weekend while at least one of their friends appeared to laugh at the screaming victim.
The broad-daylight attack happened Saturday afternoon in a residential neighborhood of San Leandro in the Bay Area. There was no immediate evidence that the victim was targeted because of his race, but detectives are pursuing “all avenues of investigative leads,” Police Lt. Ali Khan said in a statement Tuesday.
The disturbing video, captured by a resident’s security camera, shows the young attackers pushing the man to the ground and trying to take some of his belongings as he lay on a driveway and screamed for help. The two teens apparently demanded the victim’s wallet and forcefully removed his Fitbit wristband, according to police.
As the man repeatedly called for help, giggles could be heard coming from the teens’ getaway car, the video shows. The robbers eventually ran back to the vehicle and fled the scene before cops arrived, police said.
The victim, who was out for a walk that day, sustained minor injuries and did not require medical attention, police said. Authorities believe the same teens may be the same ones who robbed a 19-year-old Hispanic woman about two hours later.
