Women attack Brooklyn laundry attendant with vase, blanket
Two women beat up a Brooklyn laundry attendant, shattering a vase over his head in a wild, caught-on-video attack, police said Wednesday.
The mayhem unfolded about 4 a.m. June 8 inside the Aqua Wash Laundromat on E. 98th St. and Livonia Ave. in Brownsville.
Video footage shows the 69-year-old victim trying to back away, right before one woman dressed in a red hat and a spaghetti-strap top slammed his head with a flower pot, sending him sprawling to the floor.
The other woman, dressed in pink and carrying a kissing-face emoji purse, ran past him and tossed a blanket over him, then picked up what looked like a knife that had fallen to the floor.
The victim had gotten into an argument with the duo, but cops couldn’t immediately say what sparked the quarrel.
Medics took the victim to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition with cuts to his head.
Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
