CENTRAL PARK, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police have released new images of a man wanted for a violent attack in Central Park.

Police say the 63-year-old male victim was walking in Central Park, near the intersection of Terrace Drive and East Drive last Wednesday, when a man struck the victim from behind, causing him to fall to the ground.

When the victim fell, he broke his hand and chipped a tooth.

Authorities said the suspect spewed antisemitic remarks and made a reference to Kanye West before attacking the victim and fleeing westbound on 72nd Street on a bicycle and a bicycle trailer, which appeared to be carrying various items including a sign that read "Hungry Disabled."
