MIDWOOD, Brooklyn -- Police have arrested a man who allegedly punched a woman repeatedly inside her car in Brooklyn Sunday evening. But thanks to two alert good Samaritans, the assault suspect is under arrest.
The victim was getting into her car in front of her residence on Ocean Parkway at 8:30 p.m. when a stranger, later identified as 24-year-old Okhunjon Dillaev, approached her car and got into the unlocked passenger side, police said. He began punching her, causing her cuts to her forehead and face, according to police. The attacker also broke her $400 pair of glasses.
Sources say a good Samaritan was driving past when he noticed the Dillaev on top of the woman. He pulled the attacker off the woman and a second good Samaritan stepped in to help hold him down, according to sources. Video provided to PIX11 shows the suspect on the ground.
Police were called to the scene and arrested Dillaev, who also had an illegal substance in his possession. He was charged with assault, criminal possession of a control substance, and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
The woman refused medical treatment.
