Man clinging to life after he is punched out on Bronx street

A 56-year-old man is clinging to life after he was punched out on a Bronx street and hit his head on the ground, police said Monday.

The victim got into a quarrel with his assailant on Morris Ave. near E. 140th St. in Mott Haven about 10:15 p.m. Friday. When his rival punched him in the face, the victim tumbled to the ground, hitting his head on the concrete.

Medics rushed the victim to Lincoln Hospital, where he is in critical condition with swelling and bleeding of the brain.

Police released a photo of the suspect Monday and asked the public’s help identifying him and tracking him down. The photo shows the suspect inside a building with the victim lying on the ground in the background outside with somebody standing over him.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
