Another pedestrian soon called 911 and Mrs. Geraldine was taken to the hospital where she recovered.
The man, who the police believe to have carried out the unprovoked attack, 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage, was arrested on Tuesday morning.
"I thought a brick or something hit me on the left side of my head and I went straight down and hit my head against the hydrant," Geraldine told the New York Post. "Blood came out, no blood splashed, but blood dripped."
"When they helped me, I said what happened because I didn't even know what happened. It was out of the blue," said Geraldine, who didn't want to give her last name, to News 4.
The 92-year-old Manhattan resident had gone to a shop in Duane Reade when Brimmage allegedly pushed her on Friday.
Geraldine is now saying that she cannot walk alone in the place where she has lived for more than 50 years.
"Most of the time I'm shaken. My head still hurts where it bleeds, where I hit the hydrant - or where he hit me, I don't know," the Post said to walk the street. "
"That damned guy put me in a state of being afraid to walk the streets by myself. So my super is trying to find someone to take me to a nearby park or supermarket. So that's it Problem, ”said Geraldine.
According to local reports, Brimmage was arrested about 100 times before Tuesday's arrest.
At the same time, the authorities are said to have noticed that Brimmage was the alleged attacker when a surveillance video was released on Monday evening.
"I'm so happy that he was arrested. Boy, he should stay in jail and think about what he did. Try to change and improve," Geraldine told News 4.
Brimmage has been arrested three times since February for alleged assault, while in 2014 he was convicted of sex offenses.
