Beware of the Midtown sucker punch stalker

Add this share

Gay Atlantans, no strangers to punching, stabbing and fighting with one another in Midtown, now have another cause for concern when walking home from the cocktail circuit. 

An anonymous dude with a powerful hook is sucker punching people as they walk in Midtown, WSB reports. The victims – at least four – never see who hits them and at least one was knocked to the ground and suffered head injuries.

Via WSB:

Local police are investigating a series of unprovoked ttacks where the victim is punched, police say.

One big challenge, according to reports, is the people being attacked never saw it coming.

They are walking down the street, often in the middle of the day with friends, when out of nowhere; they are knocked to the ground by someone punching them as they walk by.

Midtown Blue Security Patrol sent a warning Tuesday of at least four attacks. They included a mug shot of a man they say could be behind the crimes.

Stay safe.

UPDATE | Busted.
