NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Police have identified the suspect wanted in a brutal attack on a 73-year-old woman in lower Manhattan last weekend.

The NYPD says they’re looking for 23-year-old Clarence Bradley. They say he has tattoos that include “RIP JOE” on his right forearm, “OCT 11” on his torso, “CLARICE” on his left forearm and a mouth with a tongue sticking out of it on one of his arms.

The 73-year-old woman is recovering from a broken eye socket and numerous cuts and bruises. She will also need dental work after the attack early last Sunday.

Police say she was walking on Greenwich Street in the Financial District shortly after midnight Sunday when she was approached by a man who demanded sex from her.

The woman refused and the man punched her multiple times in the face, knocking out her teeth and causing other serious injuries, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
