An elderly woman was brutally sucker-punched by a much larger female in a broad daylight attack in New York City last week.

What are the details?

The unprovoked punch was captured on surveillance video as the 74-year-old victim was strolling down Madison Avenue near East 52nd Street in midtown Manhattan around 11 a.m. Wednesday, the New York Post reported.

Video shows the suspect standing near a building, bending down to pick up a duffle bag, and then suddenly punching the victim in the side of her face as she walked by, the paper said.

The elderly victim stumbled and fell on the sidewalk several feet away as the suspect casually walked away in the opposite direction of where the victim had been walking, video shows.

A bystander appeared to come to the victim's aid, the Post said.

Video also shows the suspect – who was still at large Friday, the Post said – looking over her right shoulder toward the scene of the crime while lifting up her left hand apparently as if to blow off what she did.

The victim was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Manhattan in stable condition, the paper said.

The suspect was wearing her hair up, was dressed in a white hoodie and black shorts, and was carrying a black duffel bag, the Post added.

Anything else?

A felon accused of sucker-punching a man in New York City earlier this month — fracturing the victim's skull and leaving him in coma — was released with no bail after charges against him were downgraded from attempted murder to assault and harassment.

The suspect was arrested a day later for a parole violation, the New York Post reported, adding that Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul claimed credit despite her refusal to roll back New York state’s controversial bail-reform law.
