    California grandmother beaten in random attack, police hunt suspect


    By Katherine Lam | Fox News

    WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES

    Police are hunting for the man who viciously punched a California grandmother Saturday afternoon, causing her to suffer serious injuries.

    Mi Reum Song, 86, was walking in Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood when a man walked up to her and punched her once in the forehead, FOX11 Los Angeles reported. The attack occurred near the Olympic Division police station.

    “She was struck in the forehead and fell backwards and her head struck the pavement. So [on] the back of her head there was a laceration and you can see some of the injuries to the front of her face,” LAPD Detective Heebae Cho said in a news conference.

    The 86-year-old was taken to the hospital and treated for her head injuries. She was later released.

    "She's still in a lot of pain right now. She’s still healing," Cho said.

    Yujin Ko, Song’s granddaughter, said she was in “utter shock” when she saw her battered and bruised grandmother.

    “[There were] a lot of tears...Her face was really bruised and she looked like a different person,” Ko said.

    The suspect took nothing from Song before fleeing the scene, leaving investigators searching for a motive in the attack. Surveillance video from a nearby business captured Song wearing a visor and walking down the street while a man with a backpack runs by.

    LAPD Capt. David Kowalski said the man spotted in the surveillance footage is a “person of interest” in the case.

    “We have obtained video of a male fleeing the scene and at this point he is a person of interest only, but someone we want to speak to,” Kowalski said. “We take these crimes seriously and it hurts us both personally and professionally.”

    Ko added he hopes “justice is served” and the attacker is taken into custody to prevent another incident.

    Other senior citizens have been targeted by robbers in the neighborhood, according to FOX11. Song’s attack, however, does not appear to be connected to the other incidents at this time.

    (FOX 11) - Police need your help catching the man who violently attacked an 86-year-old grandmother in Koreatown.

    WARNING GRAPHIC PHOTO:



    The images are shocking. A battered and bruised 86 year-old Mi Reum Song. Police say, the Koreatown grandmother was attacked Saturday afternoon in broad daylight with a single punch to the face.

    “She was struck in the forehead and fell backwards and her head struck the pavement, so the back of her head there was a laceration and you can see some of the injuries to the front of her face.” according to LAPD Detective Heebae Cho.

    Song’s granddaughter Yujin Ko described the moment she first saw her battered grandmother after the brutal beating.

    “Utter shock... A lot of tears ... Her face was really bruised and she looked like a different person.” said Ko.

    Police are asking for the public’s help. They’re searching for a man they’re calling a person of interest shown in this security video taken from a nearby business at the time of the attack. You can see Song wearing a visor walking alone, moments later, a man wearing a while shirt and backpack... Runs by.

    “The suspect is described as a male Hispanic 5’5” tall weighing 150 pounds. He is approximately 35 years of of age. We have obtained video of a male fleeing the scene and at this point he is a person of interest only but someone we want to speak to, said LAPD Capt. David Kowalksi.

    Police say, the motive is unclear but say the elderly woman may have been targeted. It happened near the busy intersection of Olympic and Vermont not far from the Olympic Division Police Station.

    “We take these crimes seriously and it hurts us both personally and professionally... When these type of crimes happen especially near our police station and it really hits home for all of us,”Kowalski said.

    “I hope that justice is served, that he gets locked up so he doesn’t do this to anyone else ever again.” said Ko.

    Song was treated and released and is home recovering.

    Police say, there have been other attacks on senior citizens in Koreatown. They were targeted by robbers.

    If you recognize the man in the video or have any you are urged to contact the LAPD. You can also remain anonymous by contacting Crimestoppers at 800-222-tips.

    I wonder if the poor lady is a victim of the 'knockout' game we have heard about in the past?
