18-year-old woman punched, hit in head with bottle in the Bronx
THE BRONX (PIX11) — An 18-year-old woman was beaten so brutally in the Bronx, having been punched repeatedly and hit over the head with a bottle, that her teeth were chipped in the attack, authorities said Thursday.
It happened about 3 a.m. July 26 in front of 1538 University Ave., police said.
A man, whose photo was taken by cameras at a nearby deli, was “acting in concert” with several other males while he punched the woman and struck her in the head with a bottle, police said. She suffered multiple facial injuries and chipped teeth.
She was taken to a hospital, treated and released.
The group of unidentified males ran from the scene. One was caught on surveillance cameras, but the others were not.
He’s described as a Hispanic male in his early 20s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, blue jeans and a white belt.
Anyone with information is urged to call NYPD’s anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
