(CNN) – Newly released video reveals a new portion of last month’s Taunton attacks. The footage from above the Macy’s jewelry department shows Arthur Darosa approaching a store employee and punching her in the face. The 65-year-old woman knocked to the ground.
Witnesses are seen hugging one another and tending to the victim, who was hospitalized but released soon after.
NBC 10 is withholding the name of that employee at her request. A closer look, shows the 28-year-old attacker shoving a second woman before another camera captures him fleeing.

Just moments prior, Darosa slammed his car into the store’s front door – a moment that was not caught on camera. The footage is somewhat limited.
There’s nothing from Myricks street where Darosa stabbed Patricia and Kathleen Slavin. Or from Bertucci’s where he attacked waitress Sheenah savoy and hero George Heath. Before he was ultimately shot and killed by off-duty deputy James creed.
The footage does show terrified shoppers running for their lives. And soon after a swarm of heavily armed police officers. The district attorney’s office declined to comment on the video. Noting that the attacks are still under investigation.
Darosa’s relatives said he was suffering from mental issues and had checked himself into a hospital days before the attack.
