A Pennsylvania man is accused of sucker punching another man outside a convenience store after making fun of him because he showed symptoms of cerebral palsy. Here's a look at the full surveillance video.


That's when a man in a yellow sweatshirt, identified by investigators as Baker, appears to mock the victim after he goes inside.

A few minutes later, the victim walks out of the store and the suspect apparently mocks him again.

The suspect then follows the victim into the parking lot and punches the victim in the face without warning.

The victim stumbles backward over the hood of his SUV as the man identified as Baker walks away.

The 22-year-old victim composes himself, gets into his vehicle and drives away. Police said he then contacted authorities.

"This defendant is a bully. Every decent citizen should be outraged by the defendant's conduct. The victim is to be commended for keeping his cool and notifying the police," D.A. Tom Hogan said.

Baker was charged with simple assault and related crimes. He is free on $25,000 bail.

Police earlier said Baker had a last known address of Coatesville, Pa., but said on Tuesday that Baker provided an address in Delaware at his arraignment.
