Police looking for attackers in NYC shopping mall incident
On Monday, authorities said that a man was knocked out cold after receiving a sucker punch inside a shopping center in Brooklyn.
The victim of the incident on Saturday, a 36-year-old man, was taken to the hospital, and two suspects, including the one who knocked the victim out with a right-handed punch, are still being sought.
The incident took place at six p.m. inside the Kings Plaza Shopping Mall, which is located at Avenue U and Flatbush Avenue. According to the statements made by the police, the victim had never met any of the attackers before.
The victim can be seen being punched and falling to the ground in the disturbing footage that was released by the police that captured the incident. The tape shows that when the attackers fled, the victim was obviously ignored, even by a passing security guard. The video shows that one of the women approached the victim as he was lying facedown on the ground with his hands tucked under his body. She picked up the victim’s cell phone and moved it closer to him.
The victim was transported in stable condition to Brookdale Hospital.
Anyone who may have information about the attackers is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
