A random man sucker-punched an elderly woman, and the shocking moment was captured on surveillance footage.
On September 1, 2019, around 5:30 pm, a 71-year-old woman appeared to be minding her own damn business walking down New York Avenue when this punk took a swing at her that left her on the ground with a broken jaw.
The man was dressed in an all-grey sweatsuit as he was walking and when he crossed paths with the woman he took a seemingly unprovoked swing.
He kept it pushing without looking back as though nothing even happened. According to authorities, the elderly woman suffered a broken jaw, multiple stitches, and severe contusions to the side of her face.
The video above has sparked outrage on social media. “Hope someone finds this individual and punch[es] his face 10x more than what he did,” one woman wrote.
Another user wrote: “In case anyone missed this. I don’t even care what this lady could have said or did, anyone breaking jaws of OLD LADIES [is] out of control, son needs to be off the streets ASAP.”
The NYPD released an assault warrant for the perpetrator, along with a poster showing the man’s face. They are offering a reward of up to $2,500.
