Man Seen on Video Punching Woman Out Was Hurt After Attacking Officer, Cops Say
The woman seen on video being slugged and knocked unconscious in an Atlantic City park has been released from the hospital — and her alleged assailant was reportedly hurt attacking an officer in prison.
The 44-year-old woman was released from a hospital on Sunday, according to Atlantic City Police. She has not been identified by police.
Ibn Hunter, 25 — whom authorities say was the man seen in a Facebook video punching the woman as she sat in Brown Park on Saturday — was arrested on Monday and brought to the Atlantic City Justice Facility.
The Press of Atlantic City, which posted a picture of Hunter with a bloody gash on his forehead, reports Hunter now faces a charge of assault on a police officer after attacking an officer during a strip search. Hunter is being held on $100,000 bail.
New Jersey 101.5 has contacted the jail seeking a copy of the image and an account of the altercation with an officer.
Police are also looking for the person going by the username "Bdsb BroadDay" on Facebook, who originally posted, according to the Press. The page has since disappeared.
