Jannatul Ferdous, a 34-year-old Brooklyn resident who is six-months pregnant, was walking down a sidewalk in Bedford-Stuyvesant alongside her sister when Willie Stephens, 33, allegedly snuck up behind her and socked her in the head around 3:45 p.m. Thursday, sources said.
Ferdous was knocked unconscious during the sudden attack, but neither she nor her child were critically injured.
Ferdous’ sister immediately called the cops and gave them a description of the attacker, who fled the scene. Officers found Stephens three blocks away and arrested him. The alleged assailant, who does not have a criminal record, was charged with assault.
