Multiple law enforcement sources told Fox News on Saturday they were looking for an 11-year-old boy and three other young suspects in a brutal attack on a 70-year-old Asian woman in San Francisco last weekend.

The brutal assault was captured on video, but no suspects are in custody.

Authorities said an 11-year-old black boy was an active participant, along with a 13-year-old black girl.

A 14-year-old black girl is seen kicking the woman in the head in the Anza Vista neighborhood.

A black man who just turned 18 is also wanted.

Two other suspects are believed to have been associated with a group involved in a series of robberies and have been arrested in Oakland, California.

An anonymous law enforcement source told Fox News that even if the minors are captured, their identities will remain sealed.

The 18-year-old is the only individual who could possibly face serious charges in this case.

“They just think they can do this and get away with it. And they can. They did it. Where are the parents who shouldn’t allow this behavior? And if they aren’t, who will do something about it?” asked the source.

The San Francisco Police Department did not confirm any updates from Fox News, citing an active investigation.

“They used their fist to hit me on the head several times, then they pulled me down and kept kicking me,” the elderly woman, who wanted to be identified as Ms. Ren, through an interpreter.

Fearing COVID-19, Sunday marked what her daughter said was one of the first days Ms Ren left home.

The assault happened in the hallway of his apartment complex, where the minors asked for the time.

She refused to give her iPhone 7 to the group, attempting to escape to a nearby elevator.

“They got really mad and pulled me down,” Ms. Ren said, according to the station.

Footage shows she tried to retreat to the hallway but was unable to close the door.

The suspects then returned to steal his keys and continue the attack.

“I didn’t expect this to happen to us, even though we saw a lot of reports,” said the daughter, Ms. Zheng.
