The man was transported to the hospital after being discovered unconscious and lifeless on the ground with a head injury.
The man police are searching for donned gloves and swung with enormous force, striking the victim in the back of the head, as seen on horrifying security footage. He then falls to the ground, apparently unconscious, and hits his head on the concrete.
