JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) -- The family of a woman attacked outside a Queens deli is hoping reward money will help police find the suspect.

Police say 28-year-old Richard Springer was caught on camera punching 69-year-old Eve Gentillon in Jamaica last week.

Gentillon fell to the sidewalk and hit her head, leaving her with a severe brain injury.

The family hopes to raise $10,000 in online donations.

Police are looking for Springer, also known as "Kwasi," who was also accused of stealing beer. His last known address is 147-21 109 Avenue, in Queens. A picture of Springer:

He is described as black, 28, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 175 pounds, with brown eyes, black hair in corn rows, and a tattoo on his right arm of the word "Emily". He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, blue jeans and black boots.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
