Man remains hospitalized weeks after being punched in Miami Beach, police say

Miami Beach are searching for a man who was captured on surveillance video punching another man earlier this month.

The incident was reported shortly after 9:30 p.m. Oct. 4 in the 1600 block of Lincoln Court.

Surveillance video shows a man speaking to the driver of a Volkswagen sedan through the passenger window.

The driver eventually got out of the vehicle and continued arguing with the victim before punching him in the face.

The victim fell to the ground and has been hospitalized ever since, authorities said.

Miami Beach police Officer William Collado said the victim suffered severe head trauma.

Collado said the driver, who was in a black Jetta or Passat, left after the incident, driving south on Lincoln Court and then east on Lincoln Road. 

Anyone with information about the driver is asked to call Detective Phil Henson at 305-673-7776, extension 3704, or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
