The suspect, who was last seen in a red hoodie, black jacket, black pants, face mask and black Jordan’s with red trim, is still at large.

WABC reported:

A 68-year-old woman is in critical condition after becoming a victim in a brutal punching attack and robbery in Queens on Sunday.

Police say the attack happened just 8:30 a.m. at the St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in front of 84-35 152 Street in Jamaica.

The victim was followed from behind and when she reached the top of the stairs, the suspect jumped in front of her and knocked her down so hard she went airborne.

The suspect was captured on surveillance camera.

EMS took the victim to Booth Memorial Hospital following the attack.

“I visited her yesterday at the hospital. She was alert. She was conscious. I gave her, you know, a blessing, gave her holy communion and gave her a little prayer and an icon,” Head Priest Konstantinos Kalogridis said to WABC.
