Brutal Attack on Senior Citizen Caught on Video

From the Goshen Police Department: Our department was made aware of an incident which recently occurred in one of our parks and we are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect, victim, and the witnesses on the incident. We are unsure of the exact date of the occurrence but several young people, possibly teenagers, confronted an older, senior man in the southwest corner of what appears to be Rogers Park. After a brief conversation with the older man in which the group demanded money from him in exchange for passage through the park, one of the young males struck the victim, knocking him to the ground. This behavior is sickening display of cowardice; bullying and battering a defenseless senior citizen is an appalling and unacceptable act. If any of you know the names or whereabouts of any of the participants in this video or photos, we ask that you please contact our office at 574-533-8661, private message us through Facebook, or email us at police@goshencity.comThank you for your continued support,Chief Wade BransonGoshen Police Department
