Brutal Bronx Beating Caught on Camera
By Dan Gesslein
Investigators said the victim was so brutally beaten on a Mott Haven sidewalk that he was knocked unconscious with a fractured skull.
The attack occurred at around 1 am on March 24. Cops say the victim was walking on the corner of Park Avenue and East 140th Street when he was attacked.
A nearby surveillance video captured the incident. A man is seen punching the victim across the sidewalk until he collapses. However, that did not deter the attacker. He continued to punch and kick the victim in the head as he lay on the ground until the man blacked out.
A woman is seen acting as a look out while the beating continued.
Cops did not say what precipitated the attack or if the victim was robbed.
The victim was rushed to Lincoln Hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull.
