The suspect who shoved an elderly Asian man outside a Brooklyn grocery store Monday was captured on surveillance footage stealing from a nearby shop before the unprovoked attack.

In a video released early Wednesday, the male suspect is shown snatching a bouquet of flowers from an outdoor store display on Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay and then chucking it across the sidewalk.

Moments later, around 11:15 a.m., the menace pushed the 77-year-old victim to the ground while he was looking at vegetables for sale in front of the J&R NY Supermarket on Avenue U near East 14th Street, cops said.

The suspect, who was still on the loose Wednesday, was last seen heading east on Avenue U. 

The victim refused medical attention for bruising to his left arm. 

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is probing whether the incident was a bias crime.
