If you know the savage who punched a guy about 25 times in an elevator at the W6 apartment building in Tempe early Thursday morning, Silent Witness is offering a reward for that information.

The W6, or West 6th Tempe, opened a little more than a year ago, and the apartment building off Mill Avenue is marketed toward Arizona State University students.

As you can see in the video below, the suspect in question followed the man into the apartment building's elevator shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, and punched the man in the elevator several times before the victim dropped to the floor. He then punched the victim several more times while the he's completely defenseless on the floor.

According to Silent Witness, the victim was punched around 25 times, and went unconscious after about 10 of those.

The punches left the victim with several fractures, as well as a 2-inch cut below his ear.

Silent Witness is offering a $1,000 reward (480-948-6377), and would also like to know the identity of the man who runs into the lobby near the end of the video.
