THIS is the heart-stopping moment a homeless man pushed a total stranger under a truck.
The harrowing CCTV shows the rough sleeper shoving the pedestrian under the wheels of the lorry in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday.
The victim – a well dressed man in his 60s – was critically injured in the daylight attack.
His attacker wears an luminous yellow hoodie, grey tracky bottoms and trainers.
The video starts as the man scares a woman standing on the pavement.
Then he launches the sick assault, shoving the man into the road, before picking something up from off the street and then calmly walking off.
His victim writhes in pain after being struck by the lorry.
He lays under the front tire for at least ten seconds.
Passer-bys can be seen rushing to help the man and the driver backs up.
LA police say he was rushed to hospital suffering collapsed lung and broken bones.
Cops arrested the suspect on Wednesday evening after hunting him for several hours.
Officer Mike Lopez told local reporters: “The victim islisted in critical condition with a collapsed lung and scrapes, bumps and bruises.
“We think he is going to make it, which is great news.”
