The content creator said the man, who has yet to be identified, had struck her while she was looking down at her phone to answer an email. 

‘I literally passed out, so I don’t really remember. But I guess he was really mad that my head was down – he was walking a dog, so he took it upon himself to attack me and let me know to be conscious of my surroundings,’ Kate said.

After having regained consciousness, Kate said she woke up to the man screaming at her. 

The victim posted another TikTok in which she is icing her head with the caption, ‘when you were supposed to record a podcast but now you’re icing your head with a Trader Joe’s acai packet waiting for the police to come.’

‘I have lived here for six years and I haven’t had anything even remotely similar to what happened to me yesterday,’ she said.

‘I do think this serves as a good wake up call to be a little bit more aware of my surroundings, and that’s not just in New York City, literally anywhere in the world.’
