The assault against Kat Timpf, a libertarian co-host on “Fox News Specialists,” occurred at Union Pool in Williamsburg.
A still shaken Timpf told The NYPost Tuesday that she was definitely targeted for the attack
“This was a pre-planned thing,” Timpf said. “Just to see someone look you in the eye with that kind of anger and hatred and whip water in your face … is a terrifying thought.”
Timpf said the man was silent as he tapped her on the shoulder, dumped water on her head and then splashed it into her eyes. She said the unprovoked incident forced her to cancel her speech at Kissel’s event about criminal justice reform and budget cuts.
“The way things have gotten, it’s just so sick,” she said. “I don’t even have a right to exist in public is how it feels.”
The unknown guy “walks in, clearly here because he knows I’m here, dumps an entire 1.5 liter bottle of water on me, first on my head and then I turn … to look and he splashes it directly on my face and runs out. I’m shocked, I’m stunned. I’m obviously upset. I end up not being able … to speak because of it,” Timpf wrote Monday night.
The whole thing was captured on security cameras. Very clear pics of his face and what he did. Will anything actually be done? Don't know.— Kat Timpf (@KatTimpf) July 25, 2017
Police confirmed Timpf filed a harassment complaint Monday night. They described the creep, who said nothing when he attacked, as a 6’2 black male, about 170 lbs. with dreadlocks.
