Police said there is no evidence to link the man and the woman and believe the dastardly thrust was not provoked
The images show the man casually running away from the woman, who was taken to hospital with an injury and bruises.
Police said in a statement that there was no evidence between the man and the woman.
The man is described as Asian in appearance, with a sturdy build, about 175 cm tall with short black hair.
He wore red shorts, a black hooded sweater with gray sleeves and gray hood, and a white t-shirt underneath.
In images from another part of the shopping center, the man was also seen with a female companion.
His feminine companion may be Mediterranean in appearance, with a slender build and long black hair.
Nothing indicates the man’s companion was involved.
Anyone who recognizes the man or has information about the investigation is urged to contact the police.
