Easter Bunny Gets Slammed to the Ground Outside Candy Store


FISHKILL, N.Y. (CBS/AP) Who would hurt the Easter Bunny?!?

Police say a woman dressed as the Easter Bunny to promote a Hudson Valley candy shop was slammed to the ground by a man who then ran away.

The 46-year-old woman, who was dressed in a white bunny costume, was not seriously hurt in the attack around 5 p.m. Wednesday outside the Alps Sweet Shoppe on Main Street in the village of Fishkill.

State police Investigator George Mohl says the attacker has not been caught.

The man was described as about 17 years old with blond hair, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and a green zippered sweat shirt.

State police hope passing drivers saw something and will call in tips.
