The authorities in New York City are looking for a man who brutally is just a woman in her head, in an unprovoked attack as she walked along a sidewalk in Brooklyn earlier this month, authorities said Wednesday.

The attack was captured on video. The 27-year-old woman was walking through the Crown Heights neighborhood in broad daylight on March 9, when a man casually approached her and hit her in the side of her head, the New York City Police Department said.

The man exchanged no words with the woman before striking her and then quietly turned and walked away, sources told WPIX-TV.

The woman suffered pain to her head, but was able to self-Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center for treatment, the station reported. Her condition was not immediately clear.

The attacker was described as 40 years old, with black hair. He was last seen wearing a navy blue jacket with the word “Yale” on the front, a black woollen hat, blue jeans and black sneakers.

The police asked anyone with information about the suspect to call 800-577-TIPS (8477).
