GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Police released video footage hoping someone would recognize those taking part in an assault caught on camera near Rosa Parks Circle.

It happened around 10:15 p.m. on July 28th near Monroe Avenue and Louis Street.

Police say the video shows several people punching and kicking a man.

"While this is not the most heinous of crimes, the community and the Grand Rapids Police Department will not tolerate this behavior in our city," Chief David Rahinsky said in a Monday night release.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (616) 456-3337 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.

    Always a gang of them young black hood rats harassing someone. We had over 100 Friday night breaking glass, loud horns, music full blast, trespessing, loitering in our neighborhood, until 4am.
    They took over 2 blocks from 1am until 4am when finally disperessed by GRPD. 90% on foot. Trash everywhere, glass, cans, bottles all over the street Saturday morning. Cockroaches of civilized society!

    Too bad they don’t try this crap on me. The police would need another box of chaulk there would be so many knee grows left on the sidewalk. Hopefully next time they get a CCW holder to assault.
