Police are looking for a man who they believe attacked another man with his own cane on Grand Street on July 22.

The suspect was allegedly fighting with a 56-year-old man between Bushwick Avenue and Humboldt Street at 11:40 a.m., when he grabbed the victim’s cane and started whacking him with it, according to police.

Paramedics brought the victim to a Queens hospital for treatment.

A bystander caught the man on video proudly holding the cane in the air while the victim lay on the ground arms flailing.

Police said the suspect — who in the video was wearing a brown T-shirt and black shorts — has black hair and brown eyes.
