A six-year-old child was maced in a Laundromat in New York City at 6:10pm on Saturday night.
The little girl is recovering in a hospital, and New York Police Officers say the "brute" that assaulted the small child has surrendered and is in custody.
The NYPD released a surveillance video after the attack occurred. The video shows a brutal assault in which the attacker beat another man before macing the victim and his small six-year-old daughter who was accompanying him.

The video footage seems to show Gonzalez holding down a man and viciously hitting him. The alleged attacker then takes out a bottle of mace and sprays the man and his terrified daughter.
Eyewitnesses have stated that the suspect burst into a Bronx coin laundry shop and began to "pummel" father Derrick Dunn before using the mace spray. The event sparked a citywide manhunt for the attacker.
According to the New York Daily News, "Investigators believe Dunn and Gonzalez's girlfriend had previously gotten into an argument over the use of a laundry cart, and Gonzalez had come to settle the score, the sources said ... The video shows the suspect gave Dunn a clobbering, holding him down with one hand and landing a series of haymakers with the other. Then the suspect can be seen readying a bottle of mace for use before unleashing it on the 47-year-old father and his little girl."
According to the New York Police Department, the alleged attacker surrendered after the circulation of the surveillance video clip, and was charged with assault.
The young girl and her father are expected to recover fully. You can watch the surveillance video below.
