Shocking moment man sucker-punches woman, 27, crossing the street in Brooklyn while talking on her p
Police in New York City have released surveillance video showing a man randomly sucker-punching a woman crossing the street in Brooklyn earlier this month.
According to the NYPD, the violent and unprovoked attack took place at 12.10pm noon on March 9 in the area of Nostrand Avenue and Crown Street.
The video shows the victim, identified only as a 27-year-old woman, crossing the street while talking on her cellphone.
As she reaches the sidewalk, a man wearing a blue jacket with the word 'Yale' emblazoned across the front and a beanie hat slowly walks up to the pedestrian in total silence and takes a wild swing at her.
The woman collapses to the ground on impact, after which her attacker casts a glance at her and calmly walks away with his hands in his pockets.
The woman, who has not been named, drove herself to a local hospital to be treated for a head injury.
In an effort to generate tips and apprehend the suspect, police also released a second CCTV video showing the suspect in the Yale jacket inside a nearby grocery store after the attack.
Police say they are searching for a black man, approximately 40 years old, standing at 5 feet 10 inches in height, with black facial hair.
