The elderly man was walking close to Macombs Road in University Heights when several assailants approached him. Video footage obtained by NBC4-TV shows muggers punching and kicking the man.
After he falls to the ground and appears defenseless, the group continues to kick and punch him.
The muggers stole the man’s wallet, about $240 in cash, and several credit cards.
