BRONX– Police released a shocking video in which a trio of thugs punched, stomped and beat a Pelham Bay man with a motorcycle helmet.
Investigators released a video of the vicious attack which took place last month in the normally quiet Pelham Bay near PS 14.
At around 5 am on December 9, three men approached a 44-year-old man from behind at 3137 Bruckner Boulevard. They knocked him to the ground and began punching and kicking the man in the head.
Then at one point one of the attackers started whaling on the defenseless man with his motorcycle helmet.
The attackers scooped up the victim’s backpack and all three hopped on a scooter and drove away. The backpack contained the victim’s cell phone and debit card.
