Assault suspects took pics of victim after knocking him out: cops

Police released sickening video of a man being sucker-punched and left unconscious with a fractured skull in the Bronx — before a group of people pick his pockets and the attacker returns to take pictures of his victim.

Two men are seen walking up to the 37-year-old victim shortly after 6 a.m. June 18 at Aqueduct Avenue and Buchanan Place in University Heights, where one of them punched him in the head, causing him to fall to the ground in the middle of the intersection, police said.

After the two men walk away, several other people gather around the victim and rummage through his pockets, removing his cellphone and identification.

The man who delivered the knockout blow then returns to take a cellphone picture of the man, who is still out cold.

Another camera nearby caught the brute walking away from the scene with the other suspect — both smiling and slapping each other’s hands as if in celebration of the attack.

The victim was listed in critical but stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital, cops said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic in his 20s, with a medium complexion, medium build, black hair and a black, trimmed beard. He has tattoos on both his forearms.

He was last seen wearing a yellow baseball cap with a triangular logo, a white T-shirt, denim shorts and black sneakers with yellow trim.

The other suspect was described as a male Hispanic in his 20s, with a light complexion, a slim build, black hair and a black beard. He has a tattoo on his right forearm.

He was last seen wearing a light blue Yankees baseball hat, a light blue T-shirt and a yellow T-shirt, a black belt, camouflage cargo pants and black boots.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
