Surveillance cameras caught a man hitting a 27-year-old woman on the head unprovoked as she walked down the street in New York City on July 14, according to CBS News.
The woman was walking down Park Avenue on the Upper East Side near East 81st Street in Manhattan around 6 a.m. when a man walking in the opposite direction raised his arm and brought his fist down on her head. The man reportedly had an object in his hand as he attacked the woman and ran off after the unprovoked attack.
The victim was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital by the paramedics where she was treated for a cut on her forehead before being released. Pix News 11 shared the video of the attack on Twitter.
“WATCH: A man attacks a woman unprovoked on the Upper East Side, police said.”

The man had a beard, a short afro and appeared to be 5 feet, 9 inches tall and was last seen fleeing the scene of the attack wearing a navy blue t-shirt with orange shorts with white and black stripes on the bottom, white socks and red Crocs. Surveillance cameras caught the man on video again after the attack at approximately 6:12 a.m. in front of an apartment building located at 1050 Fifth Ave.
