An elderly Asian man was screaming out for help while at least 2 teenagers attackers him but no one came to his aid, instead, someone was heard laughing at his plight.
The horrifying incident took place in the San Francisco Bay Area, where an 80-year-old man appeared to be randomly attacked by the 2 suspects, who cops say are in their teens.
In a surveillance video shared online, you can hear the victim calling out for help but no one responds. Another person enters the frame but does nothing. It’s unclear if that person was with the suspects.
Cops say the suspected attackers are as young as 16 and their getaway car was seen a couple hours later. They are still on the loose.
Police aren’t labeling it a racially motivated crime yet, but the victim has said he believes the attack was motivated by hate.
This incident comes following the stabbing attack on 2 elderly Asian women in San Francisco. That suspect was captured and charged with attempted murder.
Meanwhile, Crazy Rich Asians star, Henry Golding, says the recent attacks have him concerned for the elderly members of his family, and he says the folks preying on the elderly are cowards.
Watch the video below.
As if hearing an 80-year old man cry out for help after getting knocked to the ground in San Leandro isn’t bad enough…
…the suspects are teens as young as 16 and you can hear one laughing loudly.
