Here’s the update–
Two teens were arrested in Paterson, New Jersey for assaulting the innocent elderly man.
The Paterson Times reported:

Two city teens have been charged with assaulting an unsuspecting elderly man as he attempted to cross an intersection, the video of which went viral on social media sparking widespread condemnation and a police investigation.

Police have identified and charged a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old with aggravated assault and endangering an injured victim for the vicious unprovoked attack on the victim as he attempted to cross the intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Van Houten Street, according to police.

Police director Jerry Speziale said the assailant shown in the video sucker punching the defenseless old man is the 17-year-old while the voice egging him on from outside of the camera vantage point is the 16-year-old.

Speziale said the 16-year-old filmed the assault which went viral on Thursday forcing a police response. He said the boy surrendered to police at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

The 17-year-old assailant remains at large and is currently being sought by police. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is being urged to contact police.

Police cannot release further information about the suspects because of their age, said the director.
