Police are on the hunt for a man who was captured on surveillance video walking up to a woman on the street in Crown Heights and punching her in the head.
The brazen daytime attack happened on March 9 around 12:10 p.m. near the corner of Nostrand Avenue and Crown Street, police said. The NYPD released video of the incident Wednesday night.
The video shows the suspect, wearing a blue and white jacket with the word "Yale" on it, walk up to the unsuspecting woman and hit her in the head with a closed fist. The force of the suspect’s blow throws the woman off her feet.
The man then ran off, heading north on Nostrand Avenue, police said.
The 27-year-old victim drove herself to Kingsbrook Hospital, where she was treated for head pain and released.
NYPD Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
