New York City police are on the hunt Tuesday for a suspect seen on video shoving a 92-year-old woman in what appears to be a random attack.
Footage of the incident, which happened Friday afternoon in Manhattan, begins with the woman traveling in one direction on a sidewalk with the assistance of a pushcart, while the unidentified suspect heads her way.
When the man passes the woman, he appears to strike her face with his left hand – causing her to fall. The man, meanwhile, continues walking in the direction he was heading and turns around to look at the woman lying on the ground as he leaves the frame of the video.
