A 65-year-old man went flying over a fence when he was sucker punched as he walked down a street in Brooklyn, police said Tuesday.
The victim’s glasses were broken in the unprovoked attack, but he did not suffer serious injuries.
The assault, which happened around 11:15 p.m. on July 6, was captured on video released by the NYPD.
The 9-second clip shows the victim and attacker walking toward each other in front of an apartment building at 99 Joralemon St. in Brooklyn Heights. As the perp breaks into a run, the victim is seen putting up his hands in a failed attempt to block the punch.
As the blow lands, the man falls head first over a fence while the attacker keeps walking.
The suspect is described as a thin black man, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing black sneakers and a white t-shirt.
He was with two other men and a woman — none of whom participated in the attack.
