Heartless brutes beat down a senior citizen in Dallas about 2 a.m. Friday morning in what cops suspect was the result of the vile “knockout game.”
Charles Pace, 74, was reportedly targeted outside a Denny’s restaurant just two weeks after another elderly man was pummeled in a similar attack.
The Denny’s manager found Pace lying face down in the parking lot in his own blood. When Pace came to, he told officers that someone sucker punched him in the back of the head, reported CBSDFW.
“Someone’s out there committing these crimes. They’re doing it with malice and forethought. They’re victimizing these people, and we need your help,” said Dallas police Maj. Jeff Cotner.
“Knockout” is a disturbing trend that has made national headlines the past few months. The game’s “players” merely target an unsuspecting victim walking down the street and try to knock him or her out cold with one punch.
The goons who play this so-called game call that move the “one-hitter quitter.”
Police say they have few leads in Pace’s attack or an eerily similar attack on Luis Rocha, 69, on Jan. 5 just a block from Denny’s outside a Campisi’s Italian restaurant, according to the local station.
Both victims said three men were involved and no one spoke. No money was stolen either.
Pace refused to be taken to the hospital and said he was fine later Friday, The Dallas Morning News reported. Rocha, on the other hand, was taken to intensive care.
Police have reportedly been combing social media looking for a clue concerning a possible motive in the assaults.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call Dallas police at (214) 671-3661.
