66-year-old viciously beaten with a bottle in a random attack in NYC caught on surveillance video

A 66-year-old man was injured in an unprovoked attack in New York City and it was caught on surveillance video released by the NYPD.


Police say that the attack occurred on Aug. 23 in broad daylight at the intersection of West 129th St. and Convent Avenue in Harlem.
The video shows a man walking with what appears to be a briefcase in one hand and a grocery bag with items inside in the other hand. Then another man runs up behind him and strikes him forcefully with a bottle.
Police say that the victim fell to the ground and was beaten several more times with the bottle by the assailant who fled soon afterward.
The victim suffered numerous injuries to his face and his head, but refused immediate medical attention.

Neighbors are shocked

Some neighbors in the area, like Amir Aalaam who works at a shelter for displaced families, were shocked by the video and said the neighborhood is generally safe and quiet.


"I can't believe that guy was hit over his head like that," he said. "That's just unjustifiable, and whoever is responsible for that, i hope they get apprehended as soon as possible."
But other neighbors said they were not surprised.
"I live in New York City, nothing don't shock me out here, trust me, nothing!" said a woman who works in the area.
Laundromat worker Dunia Diaz said she's always on the lookout for random attacks.
"You don't expect to come to work and be surprised with anything like that. It's scary. It's scary," Diaz said. "I'm always looking. I keep my eyes everywhere."
Police are seeking the public's help in identifying the attacker.

Here's a local news report about the harrowing incident:

    1. Shouldn't we expect this when they are letting violent criminals out over the covid scam? The media seems baffled about the crime wave. Duh!

      1. I have wondered how many of the rioters are paid criminals who were released from jail and immediately given a "job" to incite and commit violence and destruction.

        (Bob Dobbs? THE Bob Dobbs? I have to say, I admire that whole "clean cut, pipe smoking" look you have going!)

    3. I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    4. Excellent post, its amazing that its necessary really but it is. I think Iarfhlaith's point about bigger buttons attracting more comments is very true. I'm subtle that way.
