Investment banker caught on video slugging woman in face after Brooklyn Pride Parade

A wild caught-on-camera punch after Brooklyn’s Pride Parade has yielded many online clicks but so far no police reports.

In a shocking video widely circulated on social media, a man later identified as investment banker Jonathan Kaye strikes a woman in the face so hard Saturday evening she reeled backwards and fell down on the street.

Another person can be seen in the background of the video lying on the ground as two people offer assistance.

“This guy punched me in the face today and broke my nose and busted up my friends [sic] arm, can anyone find him?” the video was captioned.

“Oh my God,” a bystander says as Kaye walks away. “You’re an a–hole.”

“She f—ing threw s–t all over me,” Kaye, who appeared to have liquid on his jacket, replied.

“You’re a horrible person,” another man says to Kaye.

Kaye is listed on the website of Moelis & Company, a Manhattan investment bank, as a managing director who leads the global business services franchise. The bio says Kaye graduated from Duke University School of Law.

A woman who answered a number for Kaye said he wasn’t there and hung up on a reporter.

“We have become aware that one of our employees was involved in a serious incident in Brooklyn on June 8,” a Moelis spokesperson said. “We take this matter very seriously and are conducting an investigation.”

Police say no one has come forward to file a report of the assault.

“The NYPD is aware of the video,” an NYPD spokesperson said. “We encourage anyone who has been a victim to file a police report. There are currently no complaint reports on file.”
