According to the New York Post, the girl was standing in the hallway of the cardiologist’s office waiting for her mother to arrive when the stranger approached her.

In the video released by the police to New York media, the man is seen walking through the entrance hall of the surgery.

The man then approached the girl and allegedly exposed himself, PIX11 News reported.

Then, the unidentified man grabbed the girl as she tried to run away and knocked her to the ground in the hallway of the office, covered her mouth and told her to “shut up” and stop screaming.

In the video the man is seen dragging the girl through the hallway and then knocking her to the ground.

The girl was not physically injured in the attack and she resisted until the man let her go and fled on a moped.

The man is dressed in all black, wearing a beanie and a blue surgical mask, carrying a backpack.

Police are still searching for the man in the video.
