On June 12, 2017 at about 10pm Rochester Police responded to Planet Fitness at 306 North Main Street for a reported assault. The 18-year-old female victim reported she was walking out to her car when she was assaulted from behind. She was punched multiple times and thrown to the ground. The male suspect then gets in his car and drives off.

Rochester Police just received the video of incident on June 19th. The video is graphic showing the victim being punched approximately 39 times as well as being thrown to the ground and kneed to the head. For the privacy of the victim we are not releasing the entire video.
