NYPD looking for madman who randomly whacked 26-year-old woman with a hockey stick in Manhattan

Last Tuesday, a maniac randomly beat a woman with a hockey stick on a Manhattan street, marking the latest unprovoked attack on a New York City woman.

Police say the 26-year-old victim was walking on East 6th Street between 1st Avenue and A Street in the East Village around 10:30 p.m. when a man ran up to her without warning and grabbed her with a hockey stick. He allegedly hit her in the leg. .

Police said the woman was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Her attacker escaped and is still on the run.

He was last seen wearing a black jacket, light-colored hoodie, light-colored pants, and multi-colored sneakers, according to a description provided by the NYPD.

The assault occurred after several women reported being randomly punched in the face by an unknown man while walking in the Big Apple last month.

Most of the unprovoked assaults occurred in Manhattan and targeted women in their 20s.

Several women spoke about the traumatic attacks in videos posted to TikTok and Instagram, showing bruises and bumps on their faces. This prompted more victims in New York City to come forward and share similar experiences.

At least two men have been arrested in two separate attacks, and police believe they have different suspects despite similarities between the attacks.

One of the victims, a 33-year-old marketing professional for Fiddi, told the Post in an interview earlier this month that he felt “dangerous” knowing the attackers were still out there.

“I think his actions were really intentional,” Stephanie Wen, 33, said of the man who punched her in the face on March 20 near Union Square. I was so scared when that happened. It’s really difficult to talk about it. ”

The NYPD is asking anyone who knows the perpetrator of the hockey stick assault to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
