  1. If this guy is, indeed, the perpetrator, I pray someone is able to conclusively identify him and that he will be brought to justice.

    1. This guy looks like he has slippers on which makes me think he lives close by definitely not an original n e person just sayin

  2. Unlike the grainy footage from the Valentine Day attack the quality of this video is very good & someone should be able to identify this person & hopefully if he is the attacker get him off the streets.

  3. What is the white thing in his ear?

    Is it just weird lighting or is he wearing something? I believe the whiteness is too consistent in his movement to be weird lighting, i think.

    1. I think it’s just the way the light is hitting it. Look at the difference between how his left ear looks when he’s walking towards the camera and when he turns around to walk back. Hard to tell conclusively but I don’t think it’s earbuds or a Bluetooth.

  4. I’m confused by the slippers references.. Those look like shiny black leather shoes to me. The white area at the bottom of his jeans in the back is because they’re worn/frayed.

  5. Well I’m sure the police know if they are slippers or not That white thing goes around the ear they come with apple phone anyway I probably offended some people by say doesn’t look like old n e person whatever it’s just the way it is

  6. I’m in the shiny leather and slippers camp (literally the slip-on type). They kind of flop down when he takes each step and you can see the white socks in the heel area when he turns away. The ears seem like possibly ear buds to me and he pulls out the phone that they are connected right as he is turning away. Seems like just a guy pacing while he is on the phone to me (though t could still be the perp or someone who saw something relevant to the assault).

  7. At first I thought they were black Nike Free sneakers, with the white soles, but they were reflecting too much on the top. Then maybe the Air Jordan XVI from the early 2000’s….but I think they are a pair of light weight black Gucci driving shoes and the light and poor image quality make it look like they have white soles.
