Police are looking for a man they say was caught on camera beating and robbing a 56-year-old man near a Bronx bus stop Monday morning and another suspect who walked off with the robber after the attack.

The victim was at the bus stop on Prospect Avenue in Morrisania when he was attacked, police say.

Video from the scene shows the robber punching the man repeatedly until he falls to the ground and stops moving. Then, the robber is seen picking over the man, taking a gold chain, a cell phone and $50 in cash.
The second suspect is seen walking by a few seconds later. He looks down at the victim and walks off with the first suspect.

The victim was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit NYPDCrimestoppers.com.

All calls are strictly confidential.
