The victim, identified by WPIX as 61-year-old Victor Vega, died five days after being struck on Lexington Avenue in Brooklyn. The attack happened on the night of May 25 in front of Vega’s home after he and two men got into a verbal dispute, WABC-TV reported, citing police.

Video released by authorities shows Vega walking with two men before one suddenly punches him. Vega falls to the ground unconscious, landing partially under a car. His attacker can then be seen rummaging through his pockets.

Authorities rushed Vega to Kings County Hospital on May 25, where he died on May 30, WNYW reported.

Officials are offering a reward of up to $3,500 for information in the case. Anyone with information can contact police at 800-577-TIPS or leave a tip at http://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org.
