D.C. police are looking for a man who knocked another man out with one punch in an apparent robbery May 17 in Southeast.


Surveillance video from nearby Petey Greene Community Center shows the man in a red shirt punch the 63-year-old victim, dropping him to the ground. He stepped away from the motionless victim before returning, bending over him, and apparently going through his pockets and taking a dollar.

Several other people seen in the video did nothing to intervene or assist the victim.
