"I've never had any fear here in Manhattan until now"

Last month, the NYPD asked the public to be on the lookout for individuals who are participating in the knockout game after a woman was brutally sucker punched in the face.

Prior to this incident, another woman was attacked back in September. Sara Farina was walking her dog on September 25 when a man approached her from behind and punched her, DNAinfo reported.

“I’ve never had any fear here in Manhattan until now. And, now, I’m extremely fearful,” Farina told NBC News. “If I’m out, and it’s dark out, I’m scared.”

Like the victim, Farina’s face was left swollen and bleeding. She said the impact was so hard, she doesn’t even remember hitting the ground.
