EAST PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Police are investigating a video showing a man knock another man unconscious on a public street Saturday.

Surveillance cameras outside Meyer Hardware captured footage of the abrupt attack, according to store manager Barbara Rich. She said it happened in the 3500 block of Warsaw Street around noon.

The video shows a group of about four people walking along the street. Then, a man is punched in the head, apparently at random. He falls onto the concrete sidewalk as the attacker walks away.

The entire incident lasts only four seconds, but the victim lies motionless on the ground for another ten seconds until the footage ends.

Rich posted the video on Facebook and it’s since been shared hundreds of times.

Sgt. Eric Franz called the event “extremely disturbing.” He said the video is under investigation at District 3 police headquarters. It's not clear if a police report has been filed in connection with the attack.

Rich said Cincinnati Fire Department responded and took the victim to the hospital.

Further details about the incident are not available.

We’ll continue to update this story as we learn more.
