The New York City Police Department is looking for suspects seen beating a 61-year-old woman with a kitchen pot before making off with several of her personal items, including her walker.
Surveillance footage showed a woman slamming the victim into a metal railing before a second suspect began to beat her with a pan Tuesday at around 8 p.m. A third suspect can be seen kicking her while she struggled on the ground, while a fourth male stood by.
The 61-year-old was eventually dragged across the street and punched in the back several times before the suspects made off with cash, her credit cards, and her walker, the NYPD said.
Law enforcement in New York released video footage Wednesday showing an unidentified suspect striking a 60-year-old woman in the back of the head July 15 while inside Grand Central Station. The suspect was observed taking a running start before winding up and initiating what appeared to be an unprovoked attack.
The woman was taken to a local hospital after suffering injuries to her head and arm, the NYPD told the Washington Examiner in an email. The suspect hopped on a train after fleeing the scene.
For the month of June, New York City's five boroughs experienced an over-32% increase in grand larceny, a 31% uptick in auto theft, and a 16% increase in robbery, compared to numbers from the same time frame in 2020.
The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.
