Police investigate the death of a man whose pockets were rummaged by his attackers at 10 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3, 2012.
Police on Tuesday were reviewing surveillance video with the hope of learning who was behind the death of a man in his late 30s during an apparent robbery in downtown Los Angeles.
The incident happened about 10:40 p.m. Monday near San Julian and Sixth streets on Skid Row. Two men pushed another man to the ground and went through his pockets before running away, said Sgt. Richard Tamez, a watch commander at the Los Angeles Police Department's Central Station.
The robbery victim, who was described as Latino between 30 and 40-years-old, struck his head on the pavement in the fall and died.
The assailants, described by police as African American, took off running.
No other details were immediately available.
