Police in San Diego seek witnesses in attack on senior

Police Monday in San Diego combed the area of an attack on an elderly Laotian man hoping to find any witnesses.

Newlab reports police are investigating the December 17th assault as a hate crime and hope people who may have been coming to and from school may have seen something.

The unprovoked attack occurred near Porter North Elementary School between 9:07 to 9:14 a.m., according to CBS8.

The suspect is described as 40 years old in blue jeans and carrying a large bag. They also say he may have been wearing a light-colored jacket possibly a Dickies “Eisenhower” with a front zipper. He was about 6 feet tall, average build, and had brown hair.

The 81-year-old victim is still being treated for serious injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact SDPD at 619-531-2000 or crime stoppers at 888-580-8477.
