NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD wants your help finding the suspect behind an unprovoked attack in Brooklyn.
Surveillance video shows the suspect kicking and punching the 55-year-old victim.
It happened Tuesday afternoon on a busy stretch of East 13th Street and Avenue J in the Midwood section.
“It just seems lately that there’s been a lot more of these stories happening,” said one Midwood resident. “We’ve just got to be more aware of what’s going on around us.”
So far, police do not have a motive for the attack. They say the victim and suspect didn’t know each other.
