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.

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}
