Sheepshead Senior Brutalizes Ft. Hamilton Senior

An 83-year-old Sheepshead Bay resident beat up a 99-year-old Fort Hamilton man on Monday, leading to charges of assault in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon.

Gersh Gofman left Steve Pulwers, who is nearly blind, with broken ribs and a broken nose after hitting him in the face with a steering wheel club. Pulwers managed to anger Gofman by asking him to move his car, which was blocking his building’s driveway.

According to, “Pulwers, a survivor of Stalin’s forced labor camps, told reporters that the most shocking thing he remembered about the attack was the thought that he was being attacked by another Jew.”
