A 62-year-old Man Was Brutally Punched in the LES for Just $10

A 62-year-old man was brutally mugged in the Lower East Side, and his injuries are serious enough to warrant hospitalization. It happened on the evening of July 15 near the corner of Clinton and Rivington streets. The victim, who was walking home alone at 11:45 p.m., was accosted by another man.

Without any provocation, the assailant sucker punched the victim in the face, sending him tumbling to the ground. The man’s already horrific experience was compounded when the power of the strike fractured his arm.

The attacker took advantage of the situation and ran off with the victim’s cigarettes, keys, and $10. Before the police could arrive, the burglar ran away from the scene with his loot.

The tweet below verifies the news:

The injured man was quickly taken to Bellevue Hospital by emergency medical services (EMS). The victim suffered injuries to his arm and face, but he is said to be in stable condition despite the traumatic circumstances.

It’s a sobering reminder of the danger that may lie even in supposedly secure areas, and it should make everyone more wary of venturing out at night, when the incident occurred. The police are conducting a thorough investigation in hopes of finding the person or people responsible for this audacious attack.
