The NYPD has launched disturbing surveillance video displaying a person and his 22-year-daughter cowering in worry as they’re being overwhelmed by thugs in a bodega.
At one level the video reveals one of many assailants grabbing a beer bottle from the shop’s refrigerated case and cracking it over the lady’s head.
The New York Post reported that the vicious assault knocked the person unconscious, sending him to the hospital.
“A 39-year-old had her phone taken as she tried to call the 911,” the NYPD tweeted Friday. Police are investigating the case as a theft.
The incident occurred at a bodega in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood late on the evening of July 7.
The person who was attacked, Victor Martinez Medina, instructed the Daily News that it occurred very quick.
“I just started to feel punches all over,” he stated. “They only grabbed me … all the pieces is fuzzy. (My spouse) says I used to be thrown on the ground, and I don’t even do not forget that. I simply bear in mind them coming and beginning to punch and kick me.”
A police supply instructed the paper ongoing tensions between Medina’s daughter and one other lady within the neighborhood led to the violence.
