VIDEO: Elderly Asian Man Savagely Attacked by Black Man in California
83-year-old Tuyen Nguyen was savagely attacked by a Black man while walking through a parking lot in Santa Ana, California around 6 a.m. Friday morning on his way to get his morning coffee and newspaper.
Surveillance video shows Nguyen walking on a sidewalk in the garage when he was approached from in front by a Black man. As the two men start to walk by each other the Black man unloads a vicious left hook to the face of the elderly Asian man that knocks him to the ground. The Black man follows up with several more punches and then kicks him in the head with his right foot. As the Asian man is crumpled on the ground the Black man does a victory dance over him.
