Police are looking for a man who punched a 5-year-old boy on a subway train in New York. The unidentified who is pictured above was on the G train around 4.30pm yesterday and stood next to the boy’s mother. As the train approached the Bergen Street station in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighbourhood the man suddenly reached out and punched the toddler for no reason whatsoever (not that there could be a good reason mind you).
As the man fled through the opening doors he turned and, according to witnesses, cried out,
“Are you gonna cry to ya mommy!” before fleeing the scene of the crime.

The man has been described as a male around 6 feet tall, 160 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and a moustache. He wore an olive-coloured long-sleeve shirt with a black jacket, black sneakers, and beige cargo pants.
Witnesses at the scene managed to take photos of the man and police have since identified him as Ramon Thomas, aged 25. Police are asking that the public assist in tracking the man down.
After the attack medics took the young boy to NYU Langone Health-Cobble Hill where he was treated for his injuries. He suffered from bruising and swelling along the left side of his face where he was struck by Ramon. Thankfully there are no other signs of injury and the boy should make a full recovery.

Meanwhile Ramon is having a pretty bad day on the internet as people rush to heap criticism upon him for his cowardly behaviour (rightly so as far as we’re concerned).
“Thug should be caught and sucker punched till he cries for his mommy. He needs Jesus!” wrote on user online.
“Any jerk who punches a 5 year old period is not a man. He is a sissy & needs to go to jail & get punched by real men. They hate anybody coming into jail for a crime against children. He'll get his!” added another.
Meanwhile the internet has done a pretty good job of circulating the image of the man, so hopefully he’ll be arrested soon and tried for his crimes. On another note, we really have to wonder what the hell this guy was thinking. Not only was this a violent and unprovoked assault, but the man gained nothing from the attack and now he looks like a big weird wimp after he fled the scene while taunting a 5-year-old.
I bet he made his mother real proud.
