The NYPD said the assault happened on Wednesday, around 2:12 p.m. in front of 120 W. 14th Street.

Police say a male ambushed the 75-year-old victim, punching him in the back of the head and knocking him to ground. He then kicked him in the face and rendered him unconscious as his female accomplice stood by as lookout, according to police.

The duo then fled eastbound on 14th Street and the victim was transported to Lenox Hill Hospital in stable condition.

No items were reported stolen from the victim and it's unclear what the motive was, according to the NYPD.

Police say the male suspect had black hair with a red streak in it. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, beige pants and a black and gray backpack. The female suspect was last seen wearing a green dress with a hood over her head and black sneakers.
