The NYPD is looking for a woman who allegedly assaulted a 10-year-old boy at a deli in the Bronx last month.

They say the incident happened just after 2 p.m. on August 19th. Two women were in the M & G Bus Stop deli on East 206th Street when one of them got into an argument with the young boy. She allegedly punched the 10-year-old in the face, causing him to bleed from his nose. Both women fled the store; the boy later refused medical attention at the scene.

Cops say the suspect is a 35 to 45-year-old female with long braided hair. She was last seen wearing a dark-colored skirt and a white button down shirt with a black design. You can see a surveillance video of the suspect below.
