Millionaire investment banker Jonathan Kaye has been identified as the man caught on camera punching a woman in the face at Brooklyn Pride on Saturday night. Kaye, 52, is a managing director at Moelis & Co. and has overseen the company's Global Business Services division for over a decade. 

Footage of the incident only showed violence being inflicted upon the female victim, however as Kaye stormed away from the scene a stain could be seen on his suit jacket and he claimed that someone had poured liquid over him. Law enforcement has not gotten involved, however the New York Police Department has urged those involved to file a report. 

In the clip, Kaye walked up to the woman in question and launching his fist at her face, striking her with such force that she fell to the ground. Another person can be seen laying on the street in the background with others attending to them. The person who took the video alleged that Kaye "broke my nose and busted up my friend's arm." 

Without turning to see if she was ok, Kaye walked away, attempting to justify his actions to shocked bystanders by claiming that someone "f*cking threw sh*t all over me." As he left, people told him, "Go f*ck yourself." 

The clip quickly went viral on X, prompting Moelis & Co. to release a statement. "We have become aware that one of our employees was involved in a serious incident in Brooklyn on June 8," the company wrote. "We take this matter very seriously and are conducting an investigation." 

During a podcast appearance last year, Kaye, who according to the Independent is a married father of two and lives in a $4 million townhouse in Park Slope, preached about the need for "empathy" and "understanding." 

"We really focus on clients and delivering them service, attention, idea generation, and we try to be the best possible source of thoughtful judgement and opportunities as we can," he said
