LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police investigating the August robbery and beating of an 88-year-old man have released video of the attack.

Footage provided Friday shows the suspect slamming the elderly man against a wall in a Hollywood apartment building.

Police say the suspect had followed the victim from a bus to his apartment on Aug. 19.

Victim John Fu tells CBS2-TV that he gave the man money after he was forced into an elevator and punched several times in the face.

Fu has recovered from his injuries.

Police released the video in the hopes that someone will recognize the suspect. He's described as being a white or Hispanic man in his mid-20s.
