FT LAUDERDALE (CBMiami) – A Dania Beach man is in critical condition after he was severely beaten in front of a Walgreens store on the Fourth of July.

Security video from the store on Federal Highway at Stirling Road shows Anthony DePaul, 68, exchange words with a man accompanied by a child near the entrance around 7:30 p.m.

It appears as though the other man tells the young boy to step to a side and proceeds to punch DePaul several times, knocking him back onto the ground. The man then left in what appeared to be a red or copper colored two-door sedan, possibly a Pontiac, that had a sunroof and tinted windows.

Witnesses rushed over to an unconscious DePaul and called for help. He was taken to the hospital where he’s being treated for a broken jaw and bleeding in the brain.

Anyon with information on the attack is urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
