ORLANDO, Fla. - Police are looking for a man who critically injured another man with a knockout sucker punch in downtown Orlando, according to officials.

Police said the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators said the victim was unconscious and taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

Officers with OPD are now asking for help from the public in assisting them in identifying the attacker.

"It’s very scary, that’s for sure," Marcus Stringfield said.

Stringfield said that section of Orange Avenue is closed on Friday and Saturday nights because of the crowds of people.

"Everything was really chaotic after about 1 o’clock (Sunday). The crowds really started to thicken up," he said. "The streets started flooding with people."

Orlando police said the incident was not captured on the city's IRIS cameras.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call police at 407-246-2975.
