Police: Man Sucker-Punches 85-Year-Old in New York City

Video captured a man allegedly sucker-punching an 85-year-old in a park on the Upper East Side of New York City.

The video, released Wednesday, shows a man in a black jacket and red knit cap walk up behind the elderly victim, who was walking at E. 90th St. and Park Ave. New York City at about 3 p.m. Tuesday, the Daily News reported.

The attacker stretches his arm back and lands the blow as the video fades out.

When the video starts up again, it shows the attacker with his fist balled up moments later, backing away from the victim.

The elderly man was knocked to the ground with cuts on the back of his head and above his right eye, police said.

The victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition.

Police say the attacker, 28-year-old Richard (Kwasi) Springer remains at large.
