Thug punches female dog walker to ground in random attack caught on doorbell cam

A grim video shows a teenage thug run over to a woman walking her dog and knock her to the ground by hitting her in the face.

In the clip, recorded on a doorbell camera in Gillingham, Kent, Susan Linnell is walking her pooch along a pavement.

The teen then approaches from the right of the frame and charges towards her and the next moment the woman is sprawled on the ground.

He keeps on running and leaves her on the floor after the unprovoked assault on August 6 at around 8.30pm, Kent Live reports.
