Ear Hustle


Police are looking for a man they say brutally kicked and robbed a woman in the Bronx, and the entire incident was caught on surveillance video.

The incident happened just before 1 p.m. last Friday in front of 1155 East Tremont Ave.


The video is clear, so police quickly figured out the man lurking in front of the bodega is 18-year-old Alonzo Brown.

You can watch a woman walk by with her baby. The man turns to follow her, then he broke into a run and drop kicked her to the ground on top of the baby.

He grabbed her phone and ran away.

“He doesn’t have a heart,” the woman told Eyewitness News. She wouldn’t show her face to Eyewitness News and wants to be known only as Odilia.

Her 3-month-old son, Jordy, is safe despite her landing on top of him. He was snuggled into a sling when that kick came out of nowhere.

“Hitting someone, especially a baby? A person like that shouldn’t be on the street,” she said.

Police agree. Sources said Brown, 18, already has been arrested 11 times in the last three years. They’re trying to find him for arrest number 12.

Neighbors on East Tremont Avenue couldn’t believe the brazen attack and hope the suspect is caught soon.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
