OAKLAND, Calif.Police in Oakland are searching for a person responsible for shoving an elderly woman in Chinatown this week. 

Police said the broad-daylight attack happened on Monday, Jan. 10 near 9th and Franklin. KTVU has obtained surveillance video of the incident that shows someone walking at their own pace behind the woman, who was walking much slower than her attacker. 

She is shoved from behind and falls on the sidewalk before a bystander comes to her aid and the individual walks away. 

Police said when officers arrived at the scene the victim and attacker were already gone. 

Another view shows the unprovoked attack from behind.

The victim is described by police as an Asian woman, approximately 70 years old, 5’0″ tall, with a slim build.
