Man Sucker Punched on the Street

BRONX – This suspect is no Teddy Bear. Police are on the lookout for a man donning a teddy bear hoodie, who was captured on surveillance footage assaulting and robbing a man in the Bronx.

The NYPD has released video evidence showing a man and a woman at the intersection of Creston Avenue and East Burnside Avenue in Mount Hope.

Around 11:30 pm on April 2, the pair approached a 19-year-old male standing on the corner. The footage reveals the couple walking past the victim before the male suspect turns around and begins shouting at him. The suspect then confronts the victim, who attempts to retreat and drops an item on the ground.

The assailant picks up the item and, according to the police, slaps the victim in the face. He then forcibly takes the victim’s belongings.

The duo then fled north on Creston Avenue.

The male suspect is described as having a slim build and is estimated to be between 25 and 35 years old. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie featuring two teddy bears and the phrase “Legends Never Die.”

The female suspect has a medium build and is also estimated to be between 25 and 35 years old. She was last seen in a dark gray hooded sweatshirt with “Champion” across the front, gray sweatpants, and black sneakers.
