Cancer patient beaten outside store

It was a terrible scene outside a store. A group of teens attack a cancer patient and it's all caught on tape.

Police are still searching for those responsible for the beating outside a Louisville Dollar General.

Detectives say store surveillance video shows the teens approach the store. Two minutes later, they're seen leaving in a Buick.

Investigators believe the assault, which appears to be unprovoked, happened while the group was out of frame and lasted about a minute.

The victim's girlfriend says he need surgery on his eye but he's so weak from his injuries and cancer treatments that doctors will not operate.

Police have identified the driver of the Buick. So far, they have been unable to name other suspects.
