The woman, who was looking down on her cellphone as she walked, appears startled as the man grabs her from behind – but then quickly pushes him back. Video shows she then lunges toward him and swings at him, but the man quickly delivers blows of his own back.
The woman briefly falls to the ground, before getting back up as the man punches her several more times. She gets knocked back and falls into the wall but remains on her feet. And the man finally walks off.
Police are offering a reward for up to $3,500 for information.
