BY THE VILLAGE SUN | A lot of the vending that goes on in Washington Square Park is not legal. Neither is bashing someone over the head with a vendor’s table.
Police said that on Sun., Oct. 17, around 3 p.m., a 27-year-old man got into a verbal dispute in the park with three unidentified men. Things escalated and — in a move straight out of pro wrestling — the victim was smashed in the head with a folding table, punched multiple times and kicked multiple times in the head.
The victim was treated at Lenox Health Greenwich Village for cuts to his wrist and head and was in stable condition.
Police distributed a poster with photos of one of the alleged suspects, but otherwise did not provide any identifying information on the attackers.
Police are offering a reward of up to $3,500 for information on the suspects. They ask that anyone with information call the N.Y.P.D.’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site at NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter at @NYPDTips. All tips are strictly confidential.
