BROOKLYN, NEW YORK CITY: The New York Police Department posted a disturbing video on Twitter on Saturday, July 24, in which a man can be seen punching and stomping another man’s head in broad daylight in New York City, knocking the victim unconscious and robbing him.

NYPD Crime Stoppers shared the scary footage of the 9 am attack, which happened on Saturday, July 24, near Pitkin Avenue and Barbey Street in Brooklyn. In the video, a Black man can be seen wearing a mask and a gray hoodie throwing several punches at the victim, who appears to try to fight back before being beaten to the ground. The attacker hits the man repeatedly in the head, and as the victim tries to get up, the man gives him a final blow by kicking him hard with his foot. The victim then goes still, and the suspect uses the man’s belt loops to flip the unconscious body over to go through his front and back pants pockets.

When the clip started, a City Bike was already seen lying on the sidewalk, and the suspect seemed to have a black bag in one arm as he used the other arm to beat the victim. Police are still trying to identify the suspect who is wanted for robbery. A $3,500 reward is being offered.

“These are NYC streets! What used to be the safest big city sent back to the days of high crime due to failed laws that allow no consequences and embolden criminals,” tweeted the Detectives’ Endowment Association. “Politicians in Albany and City Hall need to step up now to fix their mistakes and keep New Yorkers safe.”



 

Soon, more and more people started reacting to the video. One person tweeted, "Love to know what the poor guy did to deserve this beat-down plus robbery. If it's because it's about color, we have to STOP the labeling NOW and treat crime and its criminals as is deserved." While another one said, "They can’t find out who the suspect is by looking at the Citi bike he’s riding and the number of the bike and match that with a time and date? gps tracking because I know Citi bike tracks your ride details in the app. It’s not much but it’s a start. I hope they catch him."



 



 

One person tweeted, "Looks to me like the biggest threat is not white supremacy but blacks gone wild. Give us some statistics that refutes this." While another one said, "He is probably out on bail from another crime."
