Man punches woman out in Atlantic City park; this video got him busted (WATCH)
The video that helped police track down a man who allegedly punched a woman out at an Atlantic City park — and then boasted about it — has re-emerged.
Atlantic City Police said Iben Hunter, 25, of Atlantic City, was caught Monday morning and charged with aggravated assault in the Saturday attack, and is being held on $100,000 bail in the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing.
Atlantic City Police say they were aware of the assault on Saturday and attempted to interview the 44-year-old victim at AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center, but she was unable to complete an interview at the time. During the investigation, police say, they were notified by a local newspaper of the video being posted on Facebook.
That newspaper was reportedly the Press of Atlantic City, which said Monday it had been tagged in a post of the video by a reader who hoped it could help get the word to police. That post has since been taken down, but other copies were posted online yesterday, including one by the Press.
In the video, the woman is seen sitting on a bench when Hunter walks up to her and starts a brief conversation.
The video shows a man standing in front of the victim, waving his arms about and then striking the victim in the face with his closed fist, causing her to fall back, apparently unconscious.
"This is what happens when you say I ain't gonna smack you," the man in the video said, talking to the camera and pointing down at the woman.
After viewing the video, police detective Neil Kane obtained a warrant from a judge to arrest Hunter and a flyer was passed out with his picture, police said.
Hunter was arrested on Monday morning by an officer who spotted Hunter on Arctic Avenue, according to police.
