The New York City Police Department has said that a man is wanted for assault after he hit a pregnant woman in the head with a metal wrench last month.
The heinous attack was perpetrated on June 6.
“WANTED for ASSAULT: On 6/6, at 5:20 PM, in front of 2476 Grand Concourse in the Bronx, an unknown male struck a 26-year-old pregnant female victim in the head multiple times with a metal wrench. He then fled in a silver BMW,” NYPD tweeted.
“The victim sustained a severe laceration to the head and was transported by EMS to St. Barnabas in stable condition,” the NYPD noted in a statement, according to Fox News Digital.
Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was one of the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, in 2018, highlighted the shocking attack against the woman in New York City and tweeted, “A pregnant woman was just beaten with a wrench in broad daylight in New York City. Soft-on-crime liberal politicians have emboldened criminals.”
The Big Apple has a serious crime problem.
According to NYPD crime statistics, while murder in June 2022 decreased from the June 2021 level, various other types of crime were higher in June 2022 compared to June 2021.
Another NYPD tweet notes that a man is wanted for assault for attacking a USPS worker.
“WANTED for ASSAULT: Know him? On 7/6, at 4:00 PM, in the vicinity of 3 Ave & East 48 St in Manhattan, a 51-year-old male working as United States Postal Service worker, was punched in the head multiple times by this suspect,” the tweet says.
And another tweet from the NYPD says, “WANTED for GRAND LARCENY: Recognize these individuals? On 6/26/22 at 2 PM, in front of 2014 Clove Rd, these individuals approached an elderly women in Staten Island, and removed her jewelry before fleeing.”
