Maniac punches woman in front of NYC McDonald’s in latest random attack on female pedestrians: cops

A brute punched a female pedestrian in the face after he stumbled out of a Union Square McDonald’s – as unprovoked attacks on women in the Big Apple surge, cops said.

The 23-year-old victim was walking on the Avenue of the Americas near West 14th Street around 10 a.m. March 20 when the attacker stepped out of the fast-food eatery and punched her without warning, cops said.

Surveillance video released by the NYPD late Tuesday shows the suspect running off after the attack, heading south on Sixth Avenue.

The victim was taken to Lenox Health Greenwich Village Hospital, where she was treated for an injury to her nose, police said. 

The still-at-large menace was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, brown pants, and blue jacket. 

The unprovoked assault comes amid a disturbing spate of women being randomly punched while walking in the city.

Among the victims was Halley Kate, an influencer with 1.1 million followers on TikTok, who posted a video last week saying she was assaulted so viciously she blacked out.

Skiboky Stora, 40, a criminal recidivist with an extensive criminal record, was busted in connection with the sucker-punch, authorities said.

In another random assault last week, 57-year-old Brooklyn school bus aide Dulche Pichardo was randomly slugged by an unhinged man – a brutal attack that broke her jaw and knocked out several teeth – as she walked home from work in Crown Heights, cops said.

Franz Jeudy, 33 – who has a rap sheet of similar sucker-punch attacks and a long history of mental illness – was slapped with misdemeanor charges of third-degree assault, attempted assault and harassment in connection to the attack, according to a criminal complaint.

Despite the victim’s severe injuries, Jeudy was set free by a Brooklyn judge on supervised release because the offenses are not bail-eligible.
