Suspect arrested in video showing a 92 yr old woman getting pushed towards a fire hydrant

This morning Chief Rodney Harrison tweeted:

On June 12 at 3rd Avenue between 15th and 16th Street, this individual pushed a 92-year-old woman to the ground causing her to strike her head on a fire hydrant.


According to the NY Post, “the woman tumbles hard to the ground — with the back of her head narrowly missing a fire hydrant.”

Harrison tweeted again, seeking tips.

3 hours later, Harrison shared that the suspect has now been apprehended.

One Twitter user replied “I hope that people like that are held accountable and not just released to do other horrible things. Disgusting!”
