A video circulating on social media shows a young man and lady beating a woman believed to be in her 60s.
In a video released by the New York Police Department, it was seen that the woman was telling the young duo to wear their nose masks. This seemed not to have gone down well with the younger men resulting in they assaulting the woman.
The duo attacked the woman outside the elevator at a subway station in Brooklyn.
The old woman on her way to entering the elevator stopped to engage the duo in a conversation. The woman seemed to have restricted the man’s movement for which he pushed her aside and then the other young lady hit her.
The 60-year-old strikes back briefly, at which point the two starts hitting and punching the woman to the ground.
The man repeatedly punches her, even after she is on the ground. At one point, the woman kicks her. The two knock her back down to the ground every time she tries to get up.
The duo is now on the wanted list of the New York police.
The woman sustained injuries on her face and her legs, according to PIX11. She was taken to a nearby medical center and has since been released.
People are angry that the couple attacked a 60-year-old woman seemingly all because she advocated for mask-wearing, with some blaming the NYPD.
