New York police say they've found the Brooklyn man accused of randomly punching people in several separate incidents as part of the so-called "knockout game."
The knockout game — where people will try to punch an unsuspecting victim so hard it knocks them out — has caught the attention of law enforcement. People in states like New Jersey, New York and Missouri have reportedly died from knockout attacks. (Via ITN)
