People Steal From Unconscious Punch Victim Lying in Street

NEW YORK (AP/Hamodia) —

New York City police say a man was lying unconscious in the street after being punched when other people came by and stole from him.

Surveillance video aired by WCBS shows the victim being approached by two men in a Bronx intersection on June 18.

One of the men hit him, knocking him down.

After the two men left, several others started going through the victim’s pockets, stealing his phone and identification.

Police say the man who threw the punch then returned and took pictures of the motionless victim.

The punching victim was taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition, with a fractured skull.

On Thursday, police announced the arrest of Luis Rivera, 22, of the Bronx. He was charged with second-degree assault.
