KATY, TX ( – Katy Assistant Police Chief Tim Tyler confirms for Fox 26 News an investigation is underway involving the violent trend called the knockout game. The knock out game is when a person sneaks up on an unsuspecting victim and sucker punches him/her hoping to deliver a knock-out punch.  The suspect then cowardly runs off and leaves the victim on the ground.

The local victim is an 83 year old African American man.   The suspect is only identified as a white man in the report by Isiah Cary.

The incident happened in November and it’s believed the suspect has a video tape of the incident.  The elderly man was knocked to the ground as the suspect fled the scene.  The suspect has not been arrested.

The condition of the victim was not revealed in the report but police have been interviewing him.
