The New York City Police Department is hunting for a man seen on video punching a 60-year-old female victim in the back of the head while inside a subway station.
The suspect was observed taking a running start before winding up and initiating what appeared to be an unprovoked attack, which took place on Thursday at around 10 p.m. in Grand Central station.
The woman was taken to a local hospital after suffering injuries to her head and arm, the NYPD told the Washington Examiner in an email. The suspect later hopped on a train after fleeing the scene.
For the month of June, New York City's five boroughs experienced a more than 32% increase in grand larceny, a 31% uptick in auto theft, and a 16% increase in robbery, compared to numbers from the same time frame in 2020.
