Elderly woman slapped in face in random NYC attack

An elderly woman was slapped in the face in Midtown in an unprovoked attack, police said Tuesday as they released video of the disturbing assault.

The video shows the 70-year-old woman at the intersection of Second Avenue and East 41st Street around 9:45 a.m. on July 22 — and a brute come up alongside her and slap her in the face.

The victim was treated by EMS at the scene.

The NYPD released a video of the attack asking for the public’s help in identifying the man.
