NYC: Keyon Harrold Jr. attacked by ‘Soho Karen’ who accused him of phone theft in new video

New video has emerged showing the woman who falsely accused Keyon Harrold Jr. of stealing her iPhone attacking the teen and tackling him to the floor.

The video appears to be from surveillance of the Arlo Hotel in Soho, where the disturbing encounter happened the day after Christmas.

The woman, wearing a white hat, can be seen chasing 14-year-old Keyon Jr. in the lobby of the hotel, grabbing him by the waist and pulling him down as she also falls to the floor.

Two unidentified men are also in the video, including one who appears to push the boy down.

The woman had just accused Keyon Jr. of swiping her iPhone — which was later returned to her by an Uber driver.

The footage was tweeted by NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison on Wednesday night as cops continue to hunt for the woman. She faces potential charges including assault, grand larceny or attempted robbery, the NYPD has said.
