FOX 7 Photographer among random 'punch and run' victims on Thursday

At the Omni Hotel downtown...he put his hands behind his back -- ready for the cuffs.  Before the Austin Police Officer even got to him.

Just a few minutes prior, William Brady Cassidy, 22, assaulted a FOX 7 photographer for no reason at all.

It happened on Thursday afternoon in broad daylight.  One of our photographers was standing on the Brazos Street sidewalk right next to the FOX 7 station, talking to a reporter in her car about a story.   Someone came up, sucker punched him in the back of the head completely unprovoked.
