NEW YORK (AP) - A teenager arrested after a videotaped street attack on a woman with a baby has been arraigned in the Bronx.

District Attorney Robert Johnson said Thursday that an indictment charges 18-year-old Alonzo Brown with robbery, grand larceny, reckless endangerment and child endangerment.

Police released a video showing a man rushing the woman from behind and taking 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 mother and baby were treated at a hospital.

If convicted, Brown could face 3½ to 15 years behind bars.



His attorney did not immediately respond to a comment request.

He’s due back in court on April 14.
