SAN FRANCISCO (KTLA) -- San Francisco police have arrested a 20-year-old man they say recorded a viral video of an elderly man collecting recyclables being taunted, attacked and robbed.
Dwayne Grayson was booked Thursday on suspicion of robbery, elder abuse, a probation violation for a prior robbery conviction and a hate crime enhancement, according to the San Francisco Police Department. He is being held without bond, custody records show.
The incident occurred about 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the Bayview neighborhood. A graphic video that went viral after being posted to social media shows a man striking the victim, identified as a 68-year-old Asian man, in the head with a metal pole.
