NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are hoping a sketch will lead them to the man behind a violent attack in the Bronx.
Authorities say the suspect grabbed a 68-year-old woman near White Plains Road in Morris Park and demanded money around 5 a.m. on Oct. 6.
The man then struck the victim six times with a bottle before making off with her Galaxy cell phone, a debit card, and five dollars in cash.
The woman was treated for cuts on her head and face at a local hospital.
Police say the attacker is a black man in his 40s and is about six feet tall. He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants during the assault.
