WARNING: VIDEO IS DISTURBING AND DIFFICULT TO WATCH

A disturbing surveillance video released by the New York Police Department (NYPD) shows an elderly man being brutally attacked in East Harlem last month.

The 85-year-old man was attacked while walking down Lexington Avenue and East 120th Street after 10 p.m. on August 1.

Footage shows the victim walking slowly down the street while the suspect walks behind him.

The suspect then wraps his arm around the elderly man and appears to choke him before pushing him to the ground.
