Police said the 33-year-old victim was walking east on Seymour Street when the attacker, who was standing at the corner, looked in the man's direction. When the victim reached the corner of Seymour and Wayne Avenue, the suspect struck him, knocking him to the ground, where the suspect continued to kick and stomp him as observers looked on.
After the assault, the suspect picked up his backpack and was last seen walking through a parking lot on Wayne toward Keyser Street.
