Swedish woman sucker-punched by stranger

Footage of a young man sucker-punching a woman in the street has caused anger in Sweden. Allegedly taking place in the city of Malmo, the man casually steps behind the unsuspecting woman before punching her in the side of the head, knocking her into the gutter. The person filming can be heard laughing at the attack – reminiscent of the ‘happy slapping’ video craze that took off in the UK in 2005. The man hasn’t been identified but the video contained the Instagram handle @alibalotelli – an account that has now been deleted.
