The NYPD is searching for a suspect after a random man was burned with an unidentified chemical while walking the streets of midtown Manhattan.
“Video shows the shirtless suspect creep up behind a man wearing all black and throw some sort of liquid on him. The victim, 57, turns around, stumbles and falls to the ground, hitting his head. The suspect doesn’t even look back,” reports CBS New York.
“It’s horrible. It’s a horrible incident. You never want to see something like that go on,” said Zack Williams, who works on the street.
