On Friday, footage taken in Bronx, New York, surfaced of an 83-year-old man being savagely kicked and punched by a trio of muggers.
The mugging occurred just outside the man’s home on Macombs Rd. in University Heights at around 9 p.m.
In the video, one of the muggers runs up to the victim on the sidewalk and begins to pummel him. A second man watches and then moves in for a kick, with a third man soon joining in on the attack.
Following the beat down, the muggers took the elderly gentleman’s wallet, which contained over $200 in cash and several credit cards.
Following the victim’s hospitalization, police released a report that the attackers are black men between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, all of medium build and wearing hoodies and sweatpants.
