NYPD Searching For Man Who Was Caught On Video Punching Toddler

Written by on February 1, 2022

Sickening video shows a man punching a toddler in a Harlem restaurant — and the NYPD is calling on the public’s help in identifying the abuser.

The footage shows the unknown attacker walking into the Red Star restaurant at 147th Street in Manhattan holding “a small child” at 5:40 p.m. Saturday, authorities said. The footage then shows the man putting the little victim on the floor and “strike the child causing the child to fall to the ground,” police shared in a statement.

“The adult male then puts the child in a stroller and exited the location on foot in an unknown direction,” police said.

Cops arrived to the scene when someone from the restaurant called 911. The man and child were gone when cops came, but police confiscated the surveillance video.
