At least three people witnessed a well-dressed man punching a 22-year-old male victim at Times Square subway station in New York City. Police are hunting for the assailant in the unprovoked attack, whose image was captured by surveillance cameras. The alleged assailant is as yet unidentified; he was wearing suit and tie during the assault.
On the evening of February 27, surveillance video recorded the attack when the dapper criminal approached the victim from behind and started smacking him in the head with his fists on a subway platform. Once the victim was lying on the ground, the assailant gave him a final kick to the abdomen.
Sources told the New York Daily News that the altercation may have started when the victim gave the assailant a look. The victim was treated for two chipped teeth, and paramedics also treated him for swelling and bruises to his face.
The assailant has been described as man 6 feet tall, weighing approximately 240 pounds, and apparently in his 30s. He was wearing grey overcoat, dark trousers, black shoes, and a white shirt and a striped necktie. The assailant may also have some facial hair but no moustache.
