Default Gun-wielding man attacks victim in broad daylight


Gun-wielding man attacks victim in broad daylight

A gunman was captured on surveillance video approaching a man on a Bronx street and whacking him on the head with the weapon during a botched robbery attempt two days after he flashed his gun to swipe a bike, authorities said.

The suspect

The unsuspecting victim had just walked out of a store on Morris Avenue near East 149th Street in Melrose around 12:45 p.m. Sept. 1 when the stranger followed behind him and bumped into him, video released by police Tuesday shows.

The cigarette-smoking man pulls out a gun and points it at his victim, 53, demanding money while bystanders look on and scurry out of the way.

After backing him into a corner, the gunman continues to demand money to no avail. He then swats his victim in the forehead with the gun, according to the footage.

Police said the crook then put his gun away and tried to slice the man with a box-cutter, but the victim was able to get away from his attacker, who also fled.

On the night of Aug. 30, the same man went after a cyclist just blocks away on Bergen Avenue, police said. He approached the 22-year-old victim, displayed his gun and demanded the bike.

The thief then rode away on the bike, heading north on Bergen Avenue, police 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.
