Always Drugged NYC Woman, Hitting Steel Purse At Broad Daylight, Video Shows
A week ago, police released disturbing videos showing a man jumping from his bicycle and running past a woman in the middle of the road. He tried to grab the woman’s bag, but she seemed to resist and quarreled between the two.
The man eventually hits the woman and pulls her back onto the sidewalk. Now knocking to the ground, the victim is still clutching her purse and other items as the man continues to punch her.
The NYPD is offering up to $ 3,500 in prize money. Anyone with information can call NYPDTips at 800-577-TIPS or send a direct message.
