A pregnant woman was attacked by a madman with a wrench in broad daylight in the Bronx on Monday, and the entire disturbing incident was captured in a shocking video clip, according to authorities.
The attacker can be seen repeatedly hitting the 26-year-old woman in the head before entering a nearby BMW and fleeing the scene, as several Good Samaritans attempt to block his vehicle from leaving.
The vicious attack occurred in the middle of the street on Grand Concourse by East Fordham Road, with the NYPD releasing the shocking footage early Friday morning.

Crime Up 31% Citywide in June 2022 Compared Same Time Last Year
Anyone with information is urged to tell NYPD CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
The most recent NYPD crime statistics for the city show that while murders are down, overall crime is up 31 percent in June 2022 compared to the same time last year.
Last month, robberies were up by 36.1 percent, felony assaults up by 17.3 percent, burglaries up by 33.8 percent, grand larcenies up by 41 percent, grand larcenies auto up by 25.9 percent, and the number of reported rapes up by 2.9 percent from June 2021 to June 2022.
Much of the spike in crime has been blamed by the city’s “soft-on-crime” policies, with Fox News reporting last week that 65 assistant district attorneys, or 12 percent of Manhattan prosecutors, have left their positions over the issue in recent months.
Manhattan District Attorney Bragg released a now-infamous memo on his third day in office, which kept prosecutors from seeking prison sentences for a number of crimes, as well as downgraded other charges such as robberies and commercial burglaries.
