Disturbing new video released by police shows a pair of muggers beating up a man in broad daylight on a Bronx street — as people walk by and do nothing to help the victim.
The 61-year-old man was on White Plains Road near East 226th Street in Wakefield just before 2 p.m. Monday, when his attackers approached him as he placed two bags down on the ground, police said.
One of the men pushed him to the pavement, before a second kicked him in the head, video released late Tuesday shows. The first then rifled through his pockets.
Both men socked the victim in the face, the clip shows, before taking off with $817.
The victim was taken to Montefiore Medical Center, where he was treated for pain and cuts on his lip and head.
