A teenager knocked a 70-year-old man unconscious with a stick in a random unprovoked attack on a Bronx street.

Willie Brown was walking south on Third Ave. near 168th St. in Claremont Village to visit a friend when suddenly he heard a noise — like an “explosion.”


The teen never never broke stride as he dashed away north on Third Ave. after the attack at about 1:50 p.m. on April 6, said police.

Bystanders helped Brown until an ambulance took him to Lincoln Hospital, where he was treated for bruises and a cut to the back of his head, said police.

Cops released a surveillance image of the suspect Thursday. He wore a grey hooded shirt, blue jeans and royal blue sneakers.
