A 29-year-old man was reportedly punched in the head as he walked down 6th Avenue near 14th Street around 1pm, on February 7, according to Park Slope Patch. However, we spoke to the NYPD this morning, and they tell us the mugging actually took place at 1am.
According to police, three assailants approached the victim from behind, and punched him in the head. While he was on the ground, they reportedly took several items from his pockets, and fled. The man was treated at Methodist Hospital for a laceration to the head, and released.
The victim, who told police he had been drinking that evening, could not recall exactly what was in his pockets, or offer a description of the muggers.
