According to Jason Samuel, a Neighborhood Coordination Officer at the Ninth Precinct, the victim also suffered a traumatic brain injury.

“I haven’t interacted with him but he’s alive and about,” Samuel reported.

The Alphabet City attack occurred around 4 a.m.

The victim was removed to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

As for the attack’s motive, and if there had been a prior dispute, it’s currently unknown but police are still investigating.
