NEW YORK (AP) - Prosecutors say a New York City teenager charged with assault after a videotaped street attack on a woman with a baby has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.

Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said Friday that 19-year-old Alonzo Brown will also need to serve four years of post-release supervision.

Authorities say Brown rushed a woman from behind on Nov. 28, 2014 and took a “flying drop kick” while stealing her phone. She had her 3-month-old son strapped to her as she crashed to the sidewalk.

The incident was captured on nearby surveillance cameras. The mother and baby were treated at a hospital.

An attorney listed for Brown in online court records did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
