Vicious attack in Center City caught on camera

It was 2:00 a.m. on November 10, 2013 when the 36-year-old victim was approached by a man on the 200 block of South Camac Street. Cameras were rolling as the man engaged the victim in conversation as they continued to walk down the street.

A second man, who was carrying a flashlight, then approached the victim from behind and punched him in the head and fled.
