Shocking video captures the moment a young Mexican thug slugs and knocks out an elderly man in a horrifying unprovoked attack.
Police said the unnamed delinquent and his pals are in custody after being turned in by their parents in the brazen attack in Guadalajara last week that shocked local authorities, Mexico News Daily reported.
“The youths, without conscience or values who hit an elderly person for simple fun outside the Alcalde Market, are the harsh reality and consequence of when social decay spreads like cancer,” Jalisco Gov. Enrique Alfaro said.
The footage shows the group of teens walking up to the victim at the central market in the Mexican city Thursday when one suddenly turns and punches the unsuspecting man, a video posted on Twitter by Azteca Digital reporter Jorge Kirschner shows.
The brute then slugs the victim two more times before the injured man crumples to the ground — with the teens walking on and leaving him behind unconscious.
Police launched a search for four teens in the attack and took three of them into custody after they were turned in by their parents, according to Mexico’s El Informador newspaper.
Two of the teens were later identified as Jesus N and Alonso N through social media, but they have not been officially named, according to the reports.
No other details of the case have been released.
