NEW YORK (PIX11) — Police are looking for a group of teens who attacked two women in Central Park in two separate incidents just minutes apart. Both victims were out jogging when they were hit from behind, police said.

For years, Central Park was part of her normal routine, a safe place for a morning jog, until this happened.  

“All of a sudden bikes got close to me on both sides and I got shoved to the ground,” said a 32-year-old woman as she recounted the random attack. “I started to cry, I was in so much pain and I felt so violated.” 

The incident took place Wednesday morning on East Drive near 75th Street. The victim said she was full of scrapes and bruises. She also claimed there were witnesses who did nothing to help. 

However, this victim is not alone. About 10 minutes later, a similar attack occurred on a 47-year-old woman. Police said she was hit from behind, hard in the back of her head. The 47-year-old said her vision went dark for 2 minutes.

Police are looking at surveillance video from cameras in the area with the hope of identifying the three teenagers involved.
