Miami Beach Police said they were trying to locate the son of The Real Housewives of Miami personality Alexia Echevarria to talk to him in connection to an assault on a homeless man.

A video posted on Youtube shows a man walking up to a sleeping man and hitting him in the genitals and then running away.

Based on the video and information from the victim, 62-year-old Gary Lee Brown, there is enough probable cause to arrest Peter Rosello, said Miami Beach police spokesman Bobby Hernandez.

Echevarria confirmed to NBC 6 that it was her son in the video.

"If you know Peter, you know he's not an aggressive person, especially not with the homeless," Echevarria said. "He wasn't himself ... It's not what he is, and it's unfortunate."

Echevarria also added: "Peter has been extremely affected by his brother's car accident."

Authorities want to locate and speak to Rosello.

'He's a suspect," Hernandez said. "We have enough from the victim to pursue this criminally."
