A callous attacker shoved an 88-year-old woman to the ground outside a Brooklyn deli, breaking both the woman’s wrists, cops said Monday.
Police are now asking the public’s help finding the ponytailed pusher, who was caught on camera flashing a wide, toothy grin, cops said.
The victim was shopping at Ester Deli on Nostrand Ave. near Ave. X in Sheepshead Bay at about 5 p.m. Friday when the woman pushed her from behind, then ran off, police said.
It’s not clear if the two shared words before the attack.
Emergency personnel took the victim, who fractured her wrists when she hit the ground, to Mt. Sinai Hospital in stable condition, cops said.
Police describe the attacker as black or Hispanic, with a dark ponytail and glasses. She wore a gray hat, a white t-shirt, a gray sweatshirt, a beige sweater and brown work boots, cops said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
