According to the local Police, the incident took place on the New York City subway station at 4:30 p.m. on last Saturday.
Police are on a search mission to locate and apprehend a man who punched a 5-year-old on subway station as the mother of the child was standing right next to him.
Identified as Ramon Thomas with the help of CCTV footage, the man-sucker was on the G train at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The police further revealed that he punched the boy just as the train was reaching the Bergen Street station, which is located in the neighborhood of Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill.
After punching the 5-year-old, the man had the audacity to challenge the child, after which he jumped from the train as its doors opened at the railway station.
While police have identified the suspect – they have also released his images, they are yet to determine the motive behind the attack.
Still, according to New York Daily News – after the man punched the 5-year-old, he yelled at him, ‘’Are you going to cry to ya’ mommy?’’
As a result of the assault, the boy suffered swelling and bruises on the left side of his face.
He was immediately taken to the hospital from where he was released, after being treated for his injuries. Thankfully, his condition is not critical.
To get help from the locals, Police have shared both the video as well as the images of the attacker.
While the video was captured on CCTV, it was an eyewitness who pictured the man-sucker on the train.
Finally, the police describe Thomas as having a medium build, standing 6 foot tall with black hair, brown eyes, and weighing 180 pounds.
He wore a black jacket, an olive-colored full-sleeve shirt, beige cargo pants, and black sneakers.
