HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police need the public's help to find the man responsible for a brazen attack on a delivery driver on the east side.

The beating happened on Oct. 20 at 9 p.m., where the driver was delivering a package in the 700 block of Schwartz.

Police are now releasing surveillance footage of the attack in hopes someone might have information.

The video begins with the delivery driver getting packages out of his truck, when a man suddenly attacks him and repeatedly beats him in the head with a gun.

In chilling audio, the driver can be heard struggling with the attacker, asking, "What do you want? Man, you can have it! You can have it!"

After the driver tries to distance himself, the robber walks to the victim's truck, removes a package and runs away.

Authorities described the suspect as a Black man wearing a black shirt, black pants and a white baseball cap.

If you know anything that could lead to charges or an arrest, you could be paid up to $5,000.
