Pasadena Police Tuesday sought public help to identify four men connected with an assault on a 63-year-old man who was pushed to the ground while walking with cane, suffering a broken elbow and collarbone.

The attack occurred about 3:30 p.m. Oct. 13 as the victim was walking on Lake Avenue north of Claremont Street, said Pasadena police Lt. Terysa Rojas.

The man who pushed the victim to the ground was described as black, in his mid-20s, 6-foot-1 and weighing about 175 pounds.

That suspect was accompanied by two other black men in their mid-20s. One was 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighed about 150 pounds and had short dreadlocks, along with tattoos on his stomach and both arms. His hands were wrapped in white tape like a boxer might use.

The other suspect’s height and weight were not known.

After the assault, the three men got into a car that was driven by a fourth man. The car was described as a late-model silver Toyota Camry or similar sedan. Security video of the car was circulated by police.

Anyone with information that could help solve the crime was urged to call Detective David Duran, (626) 744-7113; or use the crimestoppers.com website and insert the key word “Pasadena.”
