A 74-year-old man was punched in the head in an unprovoked attack inside a shopping mall in Flushing last month.
The victim was approached inside a store at the Shops at Skyview, located at 40-24 College Point Blvd., on Friday, Oct. 7 at about 4 p.m. — and was sucker-punched by an unknown man.
The punch led to a physical and verbal altercation. During the incident, the 74-year-old dropped his bag and the suspect grabbed it and took off.
The contents of the bag included clothing and miscellaneous items. The victim sustained minor injuries.
Police have released a photo of the suspect.
