A senseless, unprovoked attack was captured on CCTV, which left a 64-year-old man dead.
Now authorities are asking for assistance in bringing the perp to justice. On June 26, 64-year-old Patrick Gorman was sucker punched by an African American man just feet away from his Queens home. After the sucker punch, Gorman was left for dead by the curb.

Investigators are still trying to piece together exactly what happened 5 months ago. They believe Gorman may have been targeted by the unidentified man after accidentally bumping into a woman the attacker was with.
Gorman is said to have apologized to his attacker after he bumped into the woman. The footage of the horrific attack was only released by police this week. The video shows Gorman being sucker punched and hitting the curb, struggling to get up. His attacker calmly walked away with the woman he was with.
Police said Gorman laid there until EMS responded to the scene and took Gorman to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police gave the descriptions of the assailants. The male attacker is about 30 to 35 years old, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts, sneakers and holding a black bag. The woman with the attacker has short hair and can be seen walking behind the culprit, ignoring the incident. She was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, and sandals.
The medical examiner has yet to disclose the cause of death for the 64-year-old Gorman. Gorman’s obituary revealed that he is survived by his two sisters and a brother and was a lifelong sports fan. It described his love of sports, “dedicated’ to the Red Sox, Mets ‘and all things baseball, hockey, basketball, and football.”
His family members have criticized officers on the case after they took so long releasing the footage. The victim’s brother, Bryan Gorman, said, “The video could have been released the last week in June or the first week in July.”
He added, “Between the time it happened and last week, it seemed like there really wasn’t much being done on it.” The police have no leads currently.
