Shocking moment man pulls baseball bat from his sweatpants and viciously beats man in NYC

Horrifying footage captured the moment a man attacked a pedestrian with a baseball bat while walking in New York City.

The victim, 47, was seen lying on the ground with his attacker standing over him in Hamilton Heights around 8 a.m. Tuesday. It appeared as if the attacker had stalked his target before striking.

It’s unclear why the attack happened, but the unknown assailant was seen walking briefly behind the victim before pulling the bat out of his pants. The attack happened because crime has increased by 40 percent compared to 2021.

The video shows the victim of the recent attack falling to the ground after being hit in the head as another man walked by.

Images then showed that the attacker quickly turned around before walking back to the man a few seconds later. It is unclear if the two knew each other, but they seemed to be at odds.

Police say the victim sustained bruises and was taken to a local hospital. The attack seemed to be targeted. No arrests have been made.

The incident came amid an ongoing crime spree in the city, especially in the subway system, as Mayor Eric Adams insists his “blue wave” to put more NYPD officers on patrol is working across the city’s subway system.

NYPD crime figures showed that crimes, including murder, rape and robbery, are up 40 percent this year compared to 2021.

At least 2,096 crimes were reported between January and October – up from 1,570 registered in the same period last year – an increase of almost 34 percent.

According to the NYPD, there were a total of 210 crimes in October — slightly up from September’s 198.

The stats for October include all kinds of crimes, including three murders, two burglaries, 51 robberies, 46 felonies, and 108 grand larcenies.

According to newly released data, there have been nine homicides on the subway so far this year, compared to six in 2021.

So far this year, at least twelve people have been pushed in front of a subway, at least two of which have been fatal.

Major crimes in the subway system as a whole are down 13 percent in the past 28 days, and by 5.4 percent compared to 2017, the data shows.

Violent crime in the Big Apple is up nearly 30 percent from last year

But compared to pre-pandemic levels, crime rates are now shockingly high, with subway homicides at their highest level in 25 years.

It is precisely because of such violence on the transportation system that Mayor Adams has led Mayor Adams to deploy more police officers underground, with New York State even footing the bill for overtime.

But despite Adam’s progress statement and numbers “traveling south,” shocking crimes are still being committed, including several stabbings last week that left three injured last month.

Part of the rise in crime can be linked to the fact that more people are now using the subway system again and employees are returning to their offices.
