76-Year-Old Woman May Be New York's 10th 'Knockout' Victim

But Slate said that "knockout" is a myth.

A 76-year-old Brooklyn woman was punched in the back of the head by a stranger in what residents fear could be the city's tenth "knockout game" attack.

Yvonne Small fell to the ground after being punched by her assailant on Alabama Ave. and Wortman Ave. in East New York about 11:35 a.m., according to police sources.


As she was being attacked, an already-planned rally against the sick game was wrapping up in the same neighborhood.


The "knockout game" has already claimed lives in Syracuse, St. Louis and New Jersey. Several injuries have been reported in Crown Heights. One of the New York victims said he believes he was targeted because he's an Orthodox Jew.

Where gun control tends to rule.
