Young women in New York report sudden, unprovoked attacks leaving them ‘frozen with fear’


Young women in New York report being randomly attacked on the streets, leaving them in shock and fear.

Mikayla Toninato, a 27-year-old student at Parsons School of Design, was punched in the face by a tall man while texting her friend near 14th Street and Fifth Ave. She described feeling frozen with fear and shock after the unexpected assault.

Toninato’s experience is just one of several reported incidents where women have been targeted by strangers while walking in New York City.

One attacker, Skiboky Stora, was arrested for assaulting influencer Halley Kate Mcgookin. However, other perpetrators remain at large, with reports of similar assaults continuing to emerge.

In a disturbing trend, victims have been punched or slapped without warning, often while distracted by their phones.

The assaults have sparked widespread concern and led to calls for increased safety measures in the city. Despite efforts to raise awareness, many victims feel hesitant to report the attacks to the police.

The impact of these incidents extends beyond physical injuries, with victims experiencing emotional distress and anxiety about leaving their homes.

As the search for the perpetrators continues, the community remains on edge, hoping for justice and increased vigilance to prevent further attacks.
