A man is wanted in connection to a brutal assault of a 70-year-old man in Corona last month.

The assailant allegedly approached the 70-year-old victim on May 12 around 11:20 a.m. in front of a sportswear store, located at 103-12 39 Avenue, and punched him in the mouth with a closed fist, throwing him to the ground without saying a word.

The attacker kicked the victim, while he was on the ground, and then fled on foot west on 39 Avenue, police say.

The victim refused medical attention at the scene.

Police described the attacker as male, Hispanic, 25-35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, with brown eyes, black hair, a medium build, and a goatee. He has tattoos on his right hand and was last seen wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
