Brooklyn dog walker pulled to ground in headlock by would-be rapist in broad daylight

It was broad daylight in Brooklyn, just before 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, when a woman who was out walking her little dog was attacked, locked in a chokehold, and dragged to the pavement by a would-be rapist– and the entire, terrifying event was caught on a security camera.

The 30-year-old victim was walking near Woodbine Street and Ridgewood Place in Bushwick when a man police describe as approximately 30 years old and roughly 5’8″ tall, sporting black dreadlocks, a thin mustache, and a goatee sneaks up behind her, grabs her in a sleeper hold, and pulls her to the ground.

The woman is forced to let go of her dog’s leash, and the small pet can be seen barking furiously at the assailant before running down the block as the attacker begins grinding against the woman over her clothing.

Miraculously, the victim was able to fight her attacker off, and he fled eastbound on Woodbine Street.

Initially, the victim, who suffered injuries to her face and neck, declined any medical attention, but she later visited a local hospital for treatment, according to the Daily Mail.

NYPD has released video and surveillance images of the alleged attacker and are seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating him. He was last seen dressed in black shorts, a black t-shirt, and black sneakers and was wearing a black baseball cap with a rose on the front.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

It’s the latest brazen, violent attack in a city that has seen crime spiral out of control as its leader, New York City Mayor Eric Adams continues to offer little more than empty promises.

In June, American Wire reported the story of Victor Vega, a 61-year-old Brooklyn man who was viciously attacked by two young robbers who sucker-punched him — again, in broad daylight — and rifled through his pockets as he lay unconscious on the ground.

Vega was rushed to a nearby hospital, and five days later, he died of his injuries.

And in early July, the 51-year-old owner of a NYC bodega made national headlines when he was arrested and sent to Rikers for stabbing to death his attacker. The violent altercation took place over a bag of chips.

Sadly, these kinds of attacks are becoming a frequent occurrence in the Big Apple.

Crime is up a staggering 39% in New York City, according to the Daily Mail, with reports of rape surging 11% above the numbers from this time last year.

In a July interview with NBC host Lester Holt, Mayor Adams — a former police officer — flat-out admitted that progressive prosecutors in his city have emboldened would-be criminals. The week of the interview, Adams’ own aide was thrown to the ground and robbed at gunpoint as “he was heading to pick up his city car.”

“Here’s the real problem,” Adams stated. “We arrest John on Monday for grand larceny. He’s out on Tuesday, and he’s on it again on Wednesday.”
