Video: Man Sucker Punched and Robbed in Brutal Attack on Jackson Heights Street

Jan. 21, 2022 By Christian Murray

Two men are wanted for a brutal robbery that took place in Jackson Heights last week where the victim was sucker punched from behind and knocked out cold.

The heinous incident—caught on tape– took place at around 12:20 a.m. on Jan. 18, when two men approached the victim from behind in the vicinity of 77th Street and 37th Road before one of them punched him in the head.

The victim, a 43-year-old man, fell head first onto the ground unconscious. The pair then removed his wallet that contained $70 in cash and multiple credit cards, along with a Samsung cellular phone.

The suspects then fled the location on foot in an unknown direction.

EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to NYC Health & Hospitals/Elmhurst for an injury to his left eye and face.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

A 91-page summary analysis of the report from the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development paints a vivid picture of the rental landscape across the five boroughs, the places where renters live — and what they can afford.
