Police are looking for an alleged brute suspected of beating and robbing a woman in Windsor Terrace on May 26.

The 23-year-old woman told officers that the suspect smashed her face with his elbow and hurled her to the ground when she was on Vanderbilt Street between 20th and E. Fourth streets at 8:25 am.

The man snatched the victim’s purse and cellphone, but dropped the bag as he fled on foot, according to cops.
