Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Surveillance video captured footage of a man attacking and macing 47-year-old Derrick Dunn in a Bronx laundromat Saturday. According to the Daily Mail, some of the mace also hit Dunn's six-year-old daughter.

Fernando Gonzalez, 27, turned himself in for the attack after police released the video Monday. The New York Daily News reported that Gonzalez's girlfriend and Dunn had previously argued over a laundry cart.

The 17-second-long video shows the suspect holding Dunn down to beat him before spraying him and his daughter with mace.

Police charged Gonzalez with assault.
