LOS ANGELES, CA – A man was confronted by a strange woman, seemingly just for being black. It was clear the woman was not in her right mind and was possibly suffering from a mental illness, or was under the influence of an unknown narcotic.
During the bizarre encounter, the victim caught the woman on camera, including the part where she threw a puppy at him.
The man is a self-proclaimed rapper who referred to himself as Glomula. He said that the unidentified woman approached him while he was inside of his vehicle. The woman stood in front of his car and began hitting the hood.
Glomula said the woman was talking nonsense. He also said she reached into the driver’s side window of his car and tried to hit him for no apparent reason.

The woman was holding what appeared to be a German Shepherd puppy in her arms and again tried to hit Glomula, but he swatted at her attempts. The woman began a nonsensical rant which he believed was induced by some type of narcotic.
He asked her point blank:
“Are you off crank?”
The woman mumbled an incomprehensible response, then lunged at Glomula and tried to knock the man’s cell phone out of his hands.
The woman then exclaimed:
“So, what if I’m [expletive] black.”
Some might have thought that the conversation would have taken a different turn, but it continued right on down its path of confusion.
“Exactly. So, what if I’m [expletive] white?”
I didn’t say nothing about race, you racist bitch. Who are you?”

The woman, in an agitated state, kept preventing the man from getting into his vehicle and stood right in front of him. Oddly, she asked him if he was loved.
Glomula then asked the deranged women who she was and her answer was that she did not “have an identity.” She then began to kick Glomula and asked him if he was a member of the Illuminati.
During the encounter, Glomula asked the woman if the puppy belonged to her. The question must have somehow offended her because she suddenly used the puppy as a weapon and launched it at Glomula.
The puppy hit Glomula and fell to the ground. It yelped in pain then ran up to the rapper for comfort. Glomula did his best to calm the puppy, much to the dismay of the woman.
The woman continued harassing Glomula and said that the puppy belonged to her. She told the rapper that he was going to jail for stealing her dog because he refused to give it back.
Glomula was eventually able to escape the woman and took the puppy. Later, the rapper posted the video of the encounter on twitter with the caption:
“Idk what’s goin on but I got a new dog.”
The video clip posted by Glomula has gone viral and has had close to 2 million views. Many viewers were upset after seeing the video. Other people were concerned with the woman’s mental health and/or wellbeing.
One woman, identified on twitter as Holly Hawthorne, claimed the woman was suffering from some type of heroin induced psychosis.
“This is heroin induced psychosis. It’s rare but can happen with prior mental health issues. She has no idea what she is saying or doing. She needs help immediately because she could hurt someone or herself.”
Another twitter user named Burke said:
“The pupils did look constricted. Probably heroin. She needs to be locked up in a jail cell. Does not belong in society. I’ve never seen anyone on heroin doing this shit. In my area, drugs are a huge market too. So I know what I’m talking about.”

Actor Rick Moranis sucker-punched in ‘random’ and ‘unprovoked’ attack in New York City
October 2, 2020
NEW YORK CITY, NY – 67-year-old actor Rick Moranis, star of “Ghostbusters” and “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” was the victim of a “random” and “unprovoked” assault Thursday morning on the Upper West Side, according to the NYPD.
Surveillance video shows a figure, identified as Moranis, walking away from the camera as a male wearing a black “I Love New York” sweatshirt approaches Moranis from his left and punches him in the head.
🚨WANTED🚨for ASSAULT October 1, 2020 at 7:24 AM, on Central Park West in the vicinity of West 70 St Manhattan. @NYPD20PCT.Reward up to $2500👀Seen him?

Moranis can be seen falling to the ground as the suspect walks slowly away past the camera.
Moranis subsequently took himself to the hospital, reporting pain in his head, back and hip, and then reported the attack to police at the 20th precinct.
The assault occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, on Central Park West near 70th Street. The police are searching for the suspect, and the NYPD has asked that any information related to the incident be relayed to 1-800-577-TIPS.
Sadly, New York City is no stranger to random attacks such as this.
In fact, on Monday, Sept. 28, two teens punched a Queens subway conductor in what the NYPD is calling an “unprovoked attack.”
The pair reportedly were waiting for the train’s arrival, and ran up to the conductor when he stuck his head out the window. One punched the conductor in the face and both fled the station.
Evidently, random attacks on transit workers have become commonplace in New York. Robert Diehl, senior vice president of safety and security for NYC Transit, issued a statement in November 2019 regarding attacks after a train conductor was punched in the face while looking out his window. He said:
“The pattern of unprovoked attacks on Transit workers is reprehensible to the MTA, our employees and all concerned New Yorkers.
“We are fully cooperating with NYPD investigators and expect the perpetrators, when arrested, to be subjected to maximum prosecution and sentencing.”
In a violent incident in September 2020, a 65-year-old conductor was shoved onto the train tracks in an “unprovoked” attack, suffering rib and spinal fractures. The suspect in this assault was fortunately apprehended, but the attack was one of three incidents of violence against MTA workers within a 24-hour period.

As with the 65-year-old conductor, Moranis is certainly not the first senior citizen victim of a random and vicious attack.
CBSN New York reports that in Harlem on August 23, another “completely random” and “unprovoked assault” occurred in which a suspect “brutally assaulted” a senior citizen with a bottle.
The video can be viewed in the CBSN report below.
On the video, the 66-year-old victim can be seen walking across the street, carrying bags in both hands. The suspect is seen running toward the victim, wielding a bottle overhead. The suspect can be seen striking the victim in the head.
According to CBS, in a portion of the video not shown on its site, the suspect then struck the victim multiple times in the head. The victim fell down and the suspect continued to hit him with the bottle before fleeing the scene. The victim suffered multiple head and facial injuries.
A simple Google search reveals a sad abundance of additional stories of random violent attacks in New York City.
- In January 2020, a man was arrested who was thought to be responsible for “several random attacks” in the Greenwich Village area.
- In July 2020, an 89-year-old woman was approached by two men who slapped her in the face and set her on fire.
- June 2020 saw two attacks against elderly female victims, one 78 and one 92, in which suspects punched the women in the head.
- In August 2020, an elderly man on a subway was punched repeatedly in the face by two strangers “for no known reason,” according to police.
- Also in August 2020, a woman was slammed to the ground and repeatedly punched in the head, and had to be placed in a medically induced coma.
Such a string of violent and random attacks naturally would cause one to wonder what contributes to the motivation behind such brutality.
There are no easy answers and many possibilities… Thrill-seeking? Racial motivation? Drug use? Anger and impulsivity, with a complete lack of self-control?
One vicious suspect put his ‘reasoning’ in the simplest of terms when he attacked a 77-year-old man in Manhattan in September, leaving his victim in a coma.
According to the victim’s wife, the suspect approached the couple, and before punching his victim in the face, he stated:
“That’s what I do.”
