Nearly one month ago, Louis Waxman was savagely attacked in a Henderson casino parking garage and his attacker has not yet been apprehended.
Waxman, a childhood polio survivor who uses a walker, had no idea that someone was tracking his movements and following him throughout the casino.
As he made his way to his car parked in the garage at Sunset Station at approximately 4 p.m., he was jumped from behind in the third-floor parking garage.
He never saw the man who attacked him.
The attacker started to bang Waxman’s head against the concrete and he started to bleed.
A very banged up and injured Waxman was taken to the hospital suffering from two black eyes as well as numerous bruises and lacerations. He also needed stitches.
The fiercely independent Waxman recuperated at his daughter’s home in California.
In an interview recalling the brutal attack he said,
It should never happen to anyone and certainly not to seniors who are the most vulnerable.
When I spoke to Mr. Waxman to inquire about his recovery, he was in great spirits and emphasized that he wants the attacker caught so that someone else is not victimized.
He also said that he wanted to return to Las Vegas in time to celebrate his 97th birthday but, due to his injuries, he ended up staying in California and celebrating his birthday there with his family.
The suspected attacker can be seen in the video below.
Police hope that someone recognizes the attacker.
