NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police are searching for a man who they say beat a 71-year-old man into unconsciousness on a Bronx street this month for apparently no reason at all.

The victim was near Third Avenue and East 167th Street in the Morrisania section a couple weeks ago when the suspect started pummeling him with an unknown object, according to police.

The attacker continued to batter the man until he lost consciousness, police said.

The suspect didn’t take anything from the man after beating him, according to police.

The victim was rushed to Lincoln Hospital and is expected to be OK.

Police released video of the suspect Saturday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
