An elderly man in Rochester, N.Y., was a recent victim of the “knockout game,” and it was all caught on video by the alleged attacker and his cameraman. The footage was posted on Facebook, along with their personal information.
According to The Daily Caller, the video, posted by Tiaje Gray of Rochester over the weekend, shows a young man approaching an elderly man walking through the snow with his hood up, and then giving him such a wallop that he fell to the ground.
The young man can be seen hitting him hard one more time, while the elderly man is down. Even though the attacker was not identified in Gray’s post, a commenter with the alias “Haze on Homage,” wrote, “He saw me the whole time getting ready to punch him its his fault he didn’t wanna fight.”
“Haze on Homage” ended up identifying the two men by commenting on the post, and a source online claims to have learned the attacker’s true name.
The post no longer exists on Gray’s Facebook, but a screenshot was taken and posted to LiveLeak.com, as well as the date, time, location of the physical assault and the Rochester New York Police Department’s contact information.
