NEW YORK – Police have arrested a man they say randomly punched a woman in the face in Chelsea.

Halley Kate’s video about the attack went viral on TikTok, garnering tens of millions of views.

Word of the arrest comes as NYPD sources confirm they are now looking into several similar random attacks on women between March 25-27 in Chinatown, the West Village, Chelsea and Midtown. All of the victims were punched in the head and assaulted while walking.

CBS New York learned of another incident overnight. Police say a man punched a 24-year-old woman in the head around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday at Sixth Avenue and West 23rd Street in Chelsea. The victim was not seriously hurt, and the suspect took off in an unknown direction.

“This is real, and so we want to make sure that we called it out as such and warned women about this,” said Julie Menin, co-chair of the City Council’s women’s caucus. “It’s completely unacceptable. These women were literally walking down the street and randomly are getting punched in the face.”

Skiboky Stora, 40, was arrested Wednesday. Police say Stora randomly attacked Kate, 23, while she was walking on Seventh Avenue near 17th Street just after 10 a.m. Monday. He faces misdemeanor assault and harassment charges. According to court documents, the assault was captured on surveillance video.
