Pregnant Woman Hit In Knockout Attack, A pregnant woman was hit in a “knockout” attack Thursday in New York. Jannatul Ferdous, 34, is six months pregnant. Willie Stephens, 33, is the man who allegedly hit her in the head and knocked her unconscious.
According to the New York Post, neither Ferdous or the unborn baby were critically injured. The pregnant woman was hit in the knockout attack as Ferdous walked down the sidewalk with her sister in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The incident happened around 3:45 pm.
Ferdous was hit in the head in what is commonly referred to as the “knockout game.” The “game” is one where people attack unsuspecting others and try to knock them unconscious with a single blow. Luckily in this case, the suspect was quickly caught.
Jannatul’s sister immediately called the police after the pregnant woman was hit in the knockout attack. She was able to provide a description of the man who punched her sister in the head and authorities found him three blocks away. Stephens, who is said to have no criminal record, has been charged with assault. Officers believe that the attack on Ferdous was random and that Stephens did not know her. While it has not been determined for certain as of yet that the suspect was playing this vicious game, that is the belief authorities have at this point.
