A New Jersey woman was left fighting for her life Friday after a creep allegedly knocked her down while fleeing the scene of a strong-arm robbery in Times Square, law enforcement sources told The Post.
The suspect, identified by sources as Jermaine Foster, 26, allegedly snatched a 29-year-old woman’s cellphone out of her hands at West 41st Street and Broadway around 1:30 p.m., the sources said.
As the mugger fled the scene, he knocked down a 58-year-old woman from Bayonne, New Jersey. She suffered serious head trauma and was taken to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition, according to the sources.
Sources said Foster, who is homeless, was nabbed a block away from the scene.
He is facing possible charges of felony assault and robbery, the sources said.
The attack came two days after a woman was pushed into a train at the Times Square subway station during morning rush-hour.
On Monday, a man shot himself in the foot while urinating in the Crossroads of the World in broad daylight, according to the NYPD.
