WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO. Police need your help in identifying the men who attacked a transient man.

Police are taking a close look at a disturbing video in which a homeless man is being viciously attacked by two men.  It happened last Friday morning in the 1300 block of Ocean Front Walk near Horizon Avenue in Venice.  Detectives say the attack, which was caught on camera, was unprovoked. They don't know the motive for the beating.

Two men strike the homeless man repeatedly with a folding chair and kick him  over and over. The video was taken by a Venice resident  who heard the commotion, went to the window and videotaped the attack. He also called 9-1-1.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for his injuries and he was released. Anyone with information about this attack are asked to contact the LAPD.
