Elderly Woman Knocked To The Ground In Unprovoked Attack

A 43-year-old man has been arrested in Auckland after an elderly woman was viciously knocked to the ground in an unprovoked attack in broad daylight on Sunday.

In a video sent to RNZ, a man can be seen hitting an elderly woman in the face with his elbow as he walks by, knocking her to the ground before walking off, while onlookers attempt to help the victim.

RNZ understands the attack took place on Federal Street in the central city on Sunday.

Police said officers quickly located and arrested the man, who is now before the Auckland District Court.

His bail has been opposed.

The 88-year-old victim is recovering in a serious but stable condition, supported by family.
