Disturbing new surveillance video released by the NYPD shows the moment a mugger sucker-punches a woman in an East Village subway station and rips off her backpack.

The 23-year-old victim was walking out of the 1 train station at 14th Street and First Avenue — looking down at her phone — a few minutes before 6 p.m. Sunday when the stranger ran up behind her and clobbered her in the side of the head, according to police and the video clip released early Tuesday.

He then grabbed her bag, which contained a MacBook Air and debit and credit cards, and ran off, cops said. 

The victim refused medical attention on scene for swelling to her head. 

The suspect was still at large Tuesday. 

Cops describe him as about 30 years old and 5-foot-5, weighing 200 pounds, with a light complexion, medium build and facial hair.

He was last seen wearing a black winter hat, a light-colored scarf around his neck, a red and black jacket, a red, white and blue shirt, blue shorts with white stripes and blue sandals. He was carrying a large blue bag.

Terrifying moment hiker is stalked by ferocious COUGAR for five minutes as he ‘prayed he’d see wife and kids again’

THIS is the terrifying moment a hiker is stalked by a mountain cougar as he feared he wouldn’t return home to his wife and kids.

Jared Smith was walking along the Broads Fork Trail in Utah when the wild cat appeared and followed him for around five minutes.

As he captured the terrifying footage, Jared said that he was thinking about his family.

Video shows the panicked hiker repeatedly telling the cougar: "I’m going away. I’m not going to bug you."

The predator continues to prowl towards the hiker, who is walking backwards.

Jason once again tells the cougar that he’s moving away and that he won’t harm the animal.

Then, the cougar appears to speed up as she heads towards the hiker.

Jared, who is clearly startled, repeats: “I’m going away, I’m going away”.

Recalling the experience, he told Fox13: “Honestly for me, the thing that’s most important to me is my family and I have a wife and child and thinking I need to make sure I make it home from this.”

After five minutes, the cougar veered off to the side of the trail and he managed to get back to his vehicle.

Jared thinks the female wild cat was trying to protect her cubs.

He said he was shaken by the terrifying experience but has not been deterred from hiking.

He said: "This definitely shook me more than the hundreds of hours I’ve spent hiking and climbing and other outdoor experiences just because of the prolonged nature of it."

3In a separate incident, hiker Kyle Burgess came face-to-face with an enraged cougarCredit: Kyle Burgess via TMX.news

It is not the first time a hiker has been pursued along a walking trail in Utah.

Kyle Burgess, 26, posted the full video of his encounter, which took place in the Slate Canyon Trail near Provo last October.

He initially approached a set of cougar cubs that he thought were bobcats, only then to come face-to-face with their enranged mother.

He told Fox13 at the time: "Once I did realize what they were, I was like, that's mom right there. I'm screwed.”

As he walked backwards, Kyle swore and yelled at the big cat.

Fatal attacks by cougars on humans are rare, but a mountain biker was killed near Seattle in 2018.

About 25 people have died in cougar attacks in the past century.
