Los Angeles police are searching for a suspect who was caught on surveillance video assaulting an Asian man earlier this week, authorities said.

Video footage released by police shows the suspect using his elbow to strike the victim in the face while the two were outside a storefront in the neighborhood of Koreatown on Monday. The "unprovoked" attack, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, resulted in the victim falling to the ground, appearing to be unconscious in the video.

CNN's Christina Carrega and Priya Krishnakumar contributed to this report.
