A 12-year-old boy was viciously attacked by a man while he was waiting for a friend.
As a result of the attack, the 12-year-old boy lost consciousness and suffered broken bones to his face.
The attack took place at East 13th Street and Avenue T in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn a little after 3 p.m. on October 14.
The man approached the boy from behind, tapped him on the shoulder, cocked his arm back, and punched the boy in his face.
The boy then fell to the ground unconscious. There is a black SUV that appears to slow down and get a good view of the man as he walks away.
The man fled on foot headed southbound on East 13th street. The incident was caught on a street camera.
