Around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a bus stop at Beach Boulevard and Orangethorpe Avenue and found the victim unconscious, according to the Buena Park Police Department.
Witnesses told officers the victim and another man got into a shouting match, then the suspect pushed the victim to the ground and proceeded to kick and stomp the victim repeatedly in the head before taking the victim's bike and riding away eastbound on Orangethorpe Avenue, police said.
Video of the beating was captured by the dashcam of an Orange County Transportation Authority bus.
The 65-year-old man was taken to a hospital in critical condition and has yet to regain consciousness, the Buena Park Police Department said early Friday. His identity has not been released.
