    A millionaire investment banker allegedly slugged a woman in the face , sending her crashing down onto a Brooklyn street Saturday night.

    Disturbing video shows the man violently delivering an overhand right punch to the woman’s face in front of a crowd of partygoers enjoying Brooklyn Pride in Park Slope.

    The woman covered her injured face and crumpled to the ground, just feet away from a second presumably injured person lying on the pavement.

    Social media users identified the assailant in the video, which has racked up nearly 5 million views, as Jonathan Kaye, a managing director who leads the business services franchise Moelis & Co.

    “We have become aware that one of our employees was involved in a serious incident in Brooklyn on June 8.  We take this matter very seriously and are conducting an investigation,” a spokesperson for the New York-based investment bank told The Post.

    The company would not confirm whether the employee was Kaye or whether he was facing any disciplinary action.

    The video doesn’t show the moments that led up to the brutal smackdown , but shows the flustered-looking assailant walking away while wearing a jacket streaked with liquid down the back following the alleged attack.

    “She f–king threw s–t all over me,” the man believed to be Kaye can be heard saying as onlookers call the attacker an “a–hole” and a “horrible person.”

    The brute reportedly broke the woman’s nose and “busted up” another person’s arm, according to the text written over the clip.

    Kaye has overseen the Global Business Services franchise at Moelis & Co. since 2013, according to the company. He previously worked at Citi Bank as the managing director of its Global Mergers & Acquisitions Group.

    The alleged attacker lives in a ritzy Park Slope four-bedroom townhouse valued at more than $4 million.

    The lavish home is just three blocks from Ginger’s Bar, one of the last remaining lesbian bars in Brooklyn.

    The assault occurred as thousands flooded to Park Slope on Saturday in celebration of the 28th annual Brooklyn Pride Multicultural Festival, a daylong event that started with a 5K and ended with a parade along Fifth Avenue.
