Police are looking for a man who allegedly randomly punched a woman in the Village earlier this month.
According to cops, on Thurs., Jan. 7, around 6:15 p.m. a 28-year-old woman was walking along the street at Sixth Ave. and Waverly Place when she was approached by a stranger who suddenly struck her in the face. No words were exchanged prior to the incident.
The attacker then fled on foot eastbound on Waverly Place.
