From Fox News:
A woman who was allegedly whacked with a leather belt by a homeless man in Midtown on Tuesday morning said she is “traumatized” after the random attack.
“I’m not going back to work until I know this guy’s put away,” Diamond Loubriel told The Post.
“I’m really traumatized, I can honestly say.”
Loubriel, 21, was sitting outside of her workplace, Black Seed Bagels on West 49th Street near Sixth Avenue, at around 7:45 a.m. when police say Kamal Walker came up from behind and hit her.
“I was sitting down on the phone talking to my sister and he just comes out of nowhere and starts attacking me,” Loubriel recalled.
“I didn’t even see him come toward me,” she continued. “He hit me and I looked up like and I’m like ‘what the f–k is going on?’”
The Alphabet City resident described how Walker allegedly was “putting all his manpower” into swinging the belt at her back.
“It was like if he was beating the f—k out of me,” she said.
Shocked, Loubriel said she tried to protect her face from the blows – until she finally gathered the strength to stand up.
