Police are searching for a man who viciously attacked and robbed a 62-year-old woman inside the lobby of her Bedford Park apartment building.
The incident occurred on June 29 as the victim was entered her Briggs Ave. building — but the NYPD just released an image of the suspect and a horrifying video of the beating he delivered before stealing a large sum of money.
“This woman had just made a withdrawal from an ATM machine, I believe it was for a total of $700,” NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.
In the 3:30 a.m. attack, the brazen thug had followed the woman into the lobby and grabbed her from behind.
He then threw the victim to the ground and violently beat her before fleeing with the cash.
The victim, who tried to fend off her attacker, was treated at an area hospital.
Cops are hoping surveillance video of the incident will help to identify the attacker.
Police described the suspect as a black male, approximately 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, with short black hair.
