DAILYKENN.com -- A 76-year-old man was stabbed in the back while purchasing gasoline in Miami, police say.
A security video shows a male in a hoodie holding a knife as he sneaks up on the victim. He then rapidly plunges the knife into the elderly man's back several times before jogging away.
Wsvn.com described the assailant: "Along with the gray hoodie with a red design, police said the crook was wearing gray sweatpants and red shoes."
Local10.com added different information, "Police said the attacker, identified only as a black male, fled north once the victim turned around."
Police released the video on Thursday, May 14, 2020, nearly two months after the attack. It is not known why authorities waiting to release the video.
The attack failed to attract the media firestorm surrounding a failed citizen's arrest shooting in Georgia where a black male was fatally shot while being apprehended by a former police officer and his son.
