NYPD: Man punched woman in face outside Jamaica deli

A 69-year-old woman suffered a serious head injury after getting punched in the face by a man outside a Queens deli Saturday morning, cops said.

Police said Tuesday they are looking for Richard Springer, 28, of Queens, in connection to the assault. They say Springer exited the deli at 107-60 Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica shortly after 8 a.m., when he struck the woman.

Following the blow to the face, the woman fell backward to the ground, hitting her head on the sidewalk. She was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she is listed in stable condition, police said.

Video surveillance video from inside the deli shows Springer in a physical dispute with an employee before exiting.

Cops said Springer, who is also known as “Kwasi,” fled the scene after punching the woman. He is described as 5’11” and 175 pounds. He also has a tattoo on his right arm of the name “Emily,” police said.
