The police are on the hunt for the New York City man who punched an elderly woman in a random attack in broad daylight.
The incident took place on a sidewalk in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where a man with a dark complexion was caught on surveillance camera walking towards a 78-year-old lady.
As the suspect was next to the woman, he had fully extended his arm and punched her in the head before turning around and waving his hands as if he was innocent or didn’t know what’s going on.
While the woman was clutching her head, the suspect appeared to be talking to her and acting as if he’s trying to get to the bottom of the incident.
According to the reports, the suspect later ran away whereas the victim refused medical help despite admitting she was experiencing pain.
A similar incident previously occurred in Gramercy Park, Manhattan, where a 92-year-old lady identified as Geraldine was slowly walking down the street when a man approached her and extended his arm to punch her in the head.
As the woman tumbled over and hit her head in the nearby fire hydrant, the man turned around to see what’s happening before fleeing the scene.
After the incident, the police have released the footage showing the attack whereas reports confirmed that Geraldine was rushed to the hospital.
Soon after the surveillance footage went viral, the suspect has been identified as 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage from the Bronx who has a long list of offenses including assault, harassment, and random attacks.
As NBC New York reported, Geraldine confirmed she felt “happy” when she found out that the guy got arrested and she hopes he can change himself for the better.
According to News 4 Brimmage, a senior police official informed them that Brimmage had been arrested some one hundred times whereas he usually got off with a desk appearance ticket.
