Police Seek Suspect Who Sucker Punched Asian Woman on Mulberry Street
Police this week released surveillance images and footage of the suspect wanted in connection with a random attack of an Asian woman last Thursday.
As previously reported, the 68-year-old victim was collecting an item on the sidewalk when an unknown suspect clocked her in the face while passing. The sucker-punch, which transpired outside 179 Mulberry Street at 10:00pm on July 27, was caught by surveillance camera.
The woman suffered swelling and pain as a result, but reportedly refused medical attention; and the male suspect fled the scene.
Police sources tell us that the incident is not being investigated as a hate crime. However, a felony nonetheless, since the victim is older than 61.
