A brazen thug assaulted two women on separate instances in Brooklyn, violently throwing one of them down to the ground, police said on Saturday.
Police video shows the man approach a 17-year-old woman Friday around 7:10 a.m. in front of Tribuzio Meat Market on 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst, police said. He grabbed the teenager as she passed him and threw her to the ground before walking away.
Only five minutes later, he attacked his second victim less than a block-and-a-half away from his first episode, police said.
The man approached a 31-year-old woman who was waiting for her bus at the corner of 18th Avenue and 79th Street and pulled down his pants.
The unsuspecting victim walked away from the stranger, only for him to follow her and pull down his pants a second time — flashing his genitals at the horrified woman before punching her in the face and fleeing.
The woman suffered a split lip but chose not to be treated medically for her injuries, police said.
Police describe the wanted man as 30 to 40 years old, approximately 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds with a medium build.
