The strike knocked the woman to the ground, causing her to fall head first into the wrought iron fencing around a sidewalk planter.
The female suspect then continued to punch and kick the victim multiple times in the head and body, knocking her unconscious, authorities said.
The male suspect snatched the victim’s purse, two cellphones, cash and a neck chain, while the female suspect continued punching the woman, police said.
The video shows the unknown woman continue to kick the motionless victim in the head at least seven times.
The NYPD told PIX11 News the senseless attack was not random. They believe it stemmed from a prior encounter between the victim and the female suspect.
