VIDEO: 78-Year-Old Man Beaten, Robbed, And Carjacked After Pulling In Restaurant

Police are searching for three suspects who brutally attacked a 78-year-old man and left him lying in a parking lot.

Las Vegas, NV – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) has released shocking surveillance footage in an attempt to locate three men who brutally attacked a 78-year-old man during a carjacking (video below).

“Once you see this video, it should shock everybody,” LVMPD Captain Laz Chavez said during a press conference on Wednesday morning.

“This is one of our most vulnerable victims in Las Vegas — the elderly,” he added

“This man provided no resistance, and yet these men savagely beat him, took his car keys, took his cell phone, and even after they retrieved all that, they went back and beat him some more,” Capt. Chavez said.

The incident occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on Tuesday outside a restaurant on Fremont Street, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The retiree had just pulled into the parking lot, and was planning to head into the restaurant to pick up a meal.

But as he got out of his gold 2001 Ford Taurus, he “almost immediately [was] savagely attacked,” by three men, Capt. Chavez said.

A man in a white shirt approached the senior citizen and grabbed at something in the man’s hand, security footage showed.

Simultaneously, a man with a red backpack reached for the victim’s waistband from behind, and the third assailant shoved the elderly man to the ground.

The victim fell onto his back and attempted to cover his face and head while the third attacker punched him repeatedly.

The assailants left the injured man lying on the pavement, and sped off with his vehicle and cell phone, police said.

“He complied, gave his car keys, and yet he was still attacked,” Capt. Chavez said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “This cannot be tolerated.”

The captain said he met with the victim at the hospital on Wednesday morning, and that he vowed to find the men responsible for the vicious attack.

“I promised him that this community would come together and do what we can to find these three men who, for no apparent reason, none whatsoever, attacked this man,” he said.

Capt. Chavez did not disclose the extent of the victim’s injuries, but said they were “pretty substantial.”

“His eyes are swollen, his face is beaten,” he said.

Police described the suspects as thinly-built black males in their late teens to early 20s, and said they believe they likely live in the area.

The captain specifically addressed the suspects during the press conference, and urged them to surrender.

“It’s time for you to turn yourselves in now,” he said. “Give him back his dignity.”

Capt. Chavez said that witnesses told police they have seen the men in the neighborhood in the past.

They also matched the description of several suspects associated with a series of attempted vehicle burglaries and other “low-level street crimes,” in the area, the captain noted.

He urged locals to watch the video closely, and to contact the LVMPD if they have information that might aid investigators.

Police said that apprehending the men had become the “number one priority of Downtown Area Command,” and that they will face numerous charges – including attempted murder, KTNV reported.

“If we don’t catch these men now, they could absolutely do this again to someone else,” Capt. Chavez said.

UPDATE: Fox5Vegas reports that four suspects were arrested Wednesday night, and that they had gone on a crime spree specifically targeting the elderly.

This all sounds like alt-right bullshit. Not one reference?

US population: Approx 330,000,000 Whites: Approx 279,000,000 Blacks: Approx 40,000,000 Hispanics: Approx 8,000,000 Other: Approx 2,000,000

Yet Blacks commit over 50% of the homicides and 70% of violent crime. (FBI UCR data)

Games played by blacks against unsuspecting non-blacks, mostly on Whites:

-Polar Bear Hunting: Spotting older white people and attacking them, usually 2 or more blacks.

-Happy Slapping: When a White person makes eye contact with a black and the White person smiles results in an attack usually by 2 or more blacks.

-Point 'em out knock 'em out: A group of blacks goes around spotting non-blacks and one negro sucker punches that person in an effort to "knock 'em out".

-Beat Whitey Night: A large group of blacks finds an event where it's mostly White people. They wait until the event is over and the large White crowd is returning to their cars and the black mob runs through the crowd attacking the White women and kids and old folks.

There's a couple of more "games" but I think you get the point...

Politicians, Hollywood, black community activists, liberals, the news media and Law Enforcement (local PDs and Feds) are all well aware of these games, yet not a peep.

But if the roles were reversed...

I suggest you stand up and write more erotic fiction like that other story you started, @THEDUKE

When quoting the "13%" ( 13% total US black population) --The truth is actually much worse as crime and violence is typically perpetuated by only ~ 5% of the total US population ( a BM demographic ages 12 to 45). The remaining 8% (of 13%) are usually not the problem children....at least not as it pertains to violent crime. Now notice that this story has not shown up on the national news. Notice that the media protects or downplays most negativity as it pertains to blacks even in cases of heinous crime like described here. Notice that when you watch TV you will see their representation on approximately 90+% of TV commercials and as much as 50-60% of the actors in those same commercials ,( and yet only 13% of the US population.) Notice where is the equivalent representation for Hispanics, Asians or Middle Eastern backgrounds? Notice when is the last time you even saw a commercial with Asians or Hispanics or Middle Eastern actors? Notice that on those same commercials how blacks are portrayed as in an almost " fantasy propaganda" in an overtly optimized representation ( typically portrayed as very wealthy, with a present father figure, in the leader role, the knowledge / know it all role, etc. ) Notice how desperate a few black site members are in regards to attempting to deflect or deny the hugely disproportionate percentage of negative behaviors and crimes committed by fellow blacks despite news, repetitious and abundant videos and statistics to the contrary. As if they will convince most others and that you wont think and see for yourself. Notice how more and more cases are being brought forth to higher courts to contest affirmative action issues regarding blacks pertaining to employment selection, employment disparate treatment or college admissions. Notice that despite the USA currently being at its lowest level of black ( and Hispanic ) unemployment since the 1960's, a significant percentage stay unemployed......

Have you noticed? If you have you are not alone. It's like we are being fed propaganda to ignore the negatives and accept the spoon fed exaggerated and patronizing "positives". Who is behind this narrative ? the NAACP? ACLU? I suggest you stand up and make your voices and votes count as it pertains to this subject.
