| by Michael Allen

The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., recently released a surveillance video of a brutal attack and robbery.

In the surveillance video (below), a man wearing a red shirt punched an elderly man in broad daylight on May 17, noted My Fox DC.

Moments after the 63-year-old man drops to the pavement, the suspect robs him while bystanders do nothing.

The suspect robbed the man of one dollar, according to NBC Washington. For that small amount of money, the elderly man suffered several minor injuries, including a severe laceration and a bruise.

The faces on the video are blurred out, but there are stills of the suspect whom police are hoping the public will help catch for a $1,000 reward.
