The NYPD have released surveillance footage showing a male suspect who punched out a 64-year-old man, who died hours after the attack.
The victim, Patrick Gorman, was walking on the southeast corner of Main Street and Queens Boulevard in Briarsuckwood on June 26 around midnight when he was hit in the head. CCTV footage from a nearby building shows the suspect punching the man, and then walking off with a female, leaving Gorman lying on the sidewalk. EMS responded to the scene and took Gorman to a local hospital before he was pronounced dead, police said.
Police hope that by releasing the footage they will be able to identify the attacker. It is one of a string of attacks on the streets of New York.
The suspect is described as about 30 to 35 years old, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts, sneakers and holding a black bag, PIX11 reported.
The woman, who walked behind the culprit and ignored the incident, has short hair. She was last seen with a white T-shirt, blue jeans and sandals.
