A stranger punched a man in the face in an unprovoked attack on a downtown Brooklyn street early Wednesday, cops said.
The 67-year-old victim was walking on Willoughby Street near Lawrence Street, steps from the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, around 7 a.m. when the brute suddenly slugged him without saying a word, police said.
The impact caused the victim to hit his head on a parked car and on the pavement, cops said.
The victim was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, where he was listed in stable condition, police said.
The suspect, described as a man with a dark complexion and a slim build, between 25 and 35 years old and around 6 feet tall, fled.
He was last seen wearing a black mask, black hooded sweatshirt with a graphic and the word “Tokyo” on the front, black sweatpants, white socks and black slippers.
Video released late Wednesday shows him throwing something into the street, toward a moving car, as he walked on the sidewalk.
