Neighbors in Park Slope are outraged after a video that blew up on social media showing a man punching someone, causing her to fall into the street.
The video posted to X says the incident took place on Saturday night, just hours after a Brooklyn Pride event was held. The video now has over 13 million views.
"It's hard to imagine what someone could of done that warranted such an intense reaction to be hit so hard that they fall to the ground, like I don't think that there is any explanation that would not make this horrible,” said Park Slope resident Laura.
People responding online have identified the man as Jonathan Kaye. News 12 went to his home in Park Slope, where a neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous told News 12 that the man in the video is Kaye, who lives one block away from where it happened.
Kaye is employed by Moelis. The company responded to the video saying that they are “aware that one of their employees was involved in a serious incident in Brooklyn on June 8th” and that “they are taking this matter very seriously”.
The NYPD says they are aware of the video but that no criminal complaints have been filed.
