BUSHWICK (PIX11)– A man who sucker-punched a 34-year-old woman on a Brooklyn sidewalk was arrested Thursday afternoon, according to police.
Willie Stephens, 33, of Brooklyn is being charged with felony assault after what appears to be another “Knockout Game”- related incident.
The punching occurred on 795 Monroe Street around 3:45 p.m. Thursday when Stephens ran up to the unsuspecting victim and hit her in the eye, police say.
He then fled before being found by two officers working a summer youth camp in the area on Howard Avenue and Jefferson Street.
The victim was taken to a local hospital with a head injury and later released.
