Atlantic City attacker in 2015 Facebook beating pleads guilty

An Atlantic City man who struck a woman in a video posted to Facebook in 2015, has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.
Ibn Hunter, 27, is seen striking Emily Baccari as she sat in Atlantic City’s Brown’s Park.
She was knocked out by the blow.
He was arrested after police were alerted to the video and investigated.
The Oct. 17, 2015, attack was posted on Anthony Faulkner’s Facebook page several times. He was charged as an accomplice for allegedly filming the video, but has denied the claim. He said he merely posted it.
Hunter had been released on an ankle bracelet while his case went through the courts, but then cut off the bracelet and ran.

Under the plea, the state will recommend five years in prison, that will require 85 percent of parole ineligibility under the No Early Release Act.
Faulkner is due in court March 1.
