    San Jose police are hoping someone will recognize the man at the top of this article.

    He was the victim of a violent beating on June 9, but so far no friends or relatives have come forward.

    Myung Shin Oh, 46, has not regained consciousness since being attacked by unknown assailants.

    Police said they responded to a report of a verbal confrontation that ended in an assault just after 1 p.m. June 9. Police found Oh beaten and unconscious under a Highway 87 overpass between San Fernando and Santa Clara streets.

    According to witnesses, the victim was having an argument with at least one person prior to the assault, but the person ran off and has not been caught.

    Initially, although Oh was found near a homeless encampment, police said judging from his clothing and grooming, he was not homeless.  They have since listed him as homeless.

    Even though the attack happened 11 days ago, police said they haven't received any calls from friends or family looking for the man.  His doctors say they need to find his family because they need to start making decisions about his treatment.

    Anyone with information about the this case, the suspect, or the suspect's whereabouts, is urged to contact Detective Castillo #3303 of the San Jose Police Department's Assaults Unit at (408) 277-4161.

    Persons wishing to remain anonymous may call the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-STOP (7867), or may visit: http://svcrimestoppers.org/, and may be eligible for a reward.
