    NYPD Says Woman Gave 10-Year-Old Boy a Bloody Nose

    New York City police are looking for a woman who they say punched a 10-year-old boy in the face during a confrontation in a Bronx deli. (Published Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015)

    New York City police are looking for a woman who they say punched a 10-year-old boy in the face during a confrontation in a Bronx deli.

    The suspect, described as a woman about 35 to 45 years old with medium-length, braided hair, is seen in a surveillance video angrily approaching the boy inside the M&G Bus Stop Deli on East 206th Street in the Norwood neighborhood.

    Another woman, who apparently knows the suspect, is seen in the video attempting to restrain the suspect, who breaks loose and flashes her fist at the boy.

    The alleged punch wasn't captured by the surveillance camera.

    "She punched me in the nose," the boy, Mohammed Almontsir, told NBC 4 New York on Sunday. "My nose was hurting and I was scared."

    The deli is owned by the boy's father, who said he had stepped outside before the incident occurred. His son later told him he had been "making faces" at the woman.

    The incident occurred at about 2 p.m. on Aug. 19.

    Anyone with information about the woman or the incident is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
