LOS ANGELES -- Police have asked for the public's help in identifying a man who violently attacked an 85-year-old woman in Koreatown over the weekend.
The attack happened Saturday afternoon as Mi Reum Song walked to a supermarket on Olympic Boulevard near Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles police said.
David Kowalski said the department obtained surveillance video from a nearby store showing a man "clearly running" from the area where the incident happened.
A motive remained unclear as the man did not take anything from Song, Kowalski said.
And although there have been similar attacks in the Los Angeles area last year, the department said it has not connected the beating to other incidents.
