Video: Pregnant Woman Sucker-Punched in ‘Knockout Game’ Attack

Larry Celona, New York Post, August 14, 2014

A pregnant woman was sucker-punched in the back of the head Thursday afternoon–and may be the latest victim of the creepy “knockout game,” law enforcement sources said.

Jannatul Ferdous, a 34-year-old Brooklyn resident who is six months pregnant, was walking down a sidewalk in Bedford-Stuyvesant alongside her sister when Willie Stephens, 33, allegedly sneaked up behind her and socked her in the head around 3:45 p.m. Thursday, sources said.

Ferdous was knocked unconscious during the sudden attack, but neither she nor her child was critically injured.


Cops believe the attack could be connected to the “knockout game,” in which criminals try to punch their victims unconscious with a single blow. {snip}
