Default (Mexican) Subway panhandler Geovannie Nieves bashed me with a pipe because I wouldn’t give him money


Subway panhandler bashed me with a pipe because I wouldn’t give him money

A straphanger said he was clubbed into a bloody mess by a subway panhandler — just because he refused to cough up any money.

“I didn’t have no money to give him,” Michael Vansluytman, 59, told The Post from Bellevue Hospital, where he is being treated for a fractured skull and eye socket. “He was up in my face, so I said please get out of my face.

“He said I’m disrespectful.”

The suspect, 35-year-old Geovannie Nieves, has been charged with assault with a weapon, a felony.

Vansluytman, an MTA worker from the Bronx, was headed to his sister’s house in Brooklyn on a southbound No. 2 train around 11 p.m. Saturday when he got into an argument with the deranged straphanger.

Video taken by another rider shows Nieves arguing with Vansluytman and waving his hands in his face before standing up and taking a Babe Ruth-style swing with a metal rod at his unsuspecting victim.

“Before I could get up and block, he hit me with this iron,” Vansluytman told The Post.

Shocked, Vansluytman didn’t know the seriousness of his injuries until he saw “the blood gushing down my shirt.

“I was rubbing the spot where I got knocked — it’s numb . . . I didn’t know I got cut,” he said.

The suspect was picked up at 11 p.m. Sunday at the Brooklyn homeless shelter where he lives, cops said.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
