PORT CHESTER, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) -- It was a crime caught on tape not once, or twice, but a whole series of thefts as bar patrons decide to strip a passed out man of his belongings rather than send for help. Cops are going over the video to line up suspects, CBS 2's Lou Young reported Wednesday. The video shows a man out cold, prone on the sidewalk. He could have used a helping hand but all he got was indifference before being physically robbed in full view of security cameras. It's a sordid scene that includes a woman snatching a chain from around his neck, examining it like a predator fleecing helpless prey. The scene took place on Main Street after midnight, down the street from a bar called La Dolce Vita. Sergio Palacios, 38, is seen staggering from the place and collapses on the sidewalk. Port Chester Police Chief Joseph Krezeminski said he was furious over what the video reveals next. One passer-by even takes his belt. Another removes his shoes in an attempt to see if money is stashed in his socks. Neighbors said it isn't unusual; just rarely caught on camera.
