A teenager from New York City shared a video on TikTok recounting a traumatic incident in which she was sucker-punched a stranger in Chelsea. Ellio Wagner, 19, explained that she was on her way to work early in the morning when she noticed a man walking towards her. Feeling uneasy, she suddenly found herself being punched in the face before she could react. Wagner described the incident as scary and emphasized the unpredictability of such attacks.
Following the assault, Wagner immediately called 911 and reported the incident. She expressed her hope that the nearby grocery store’s surveillance cameras would help identify the attacker and lead to justice being served. In the video, Wagner appeared with a black eye and expressed her fear of walking alone in the city due to the attack. She also highlighted the increasing number of mentally ill individuals walking in public spaces.
Wagner urged women in New York City to take precautions and be aware of their surroundings, emphasizing the importance of self-protection. She shared her concern about the potential for more serious harm if no one had been around to intervene during the attack. Finally, Wagner acknowledged the dangers that can exist in New York City, despite her previous sense of security.
