NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A mail carrier is recovering after suffering several broken bones in his face.
Police said he was assaulted by at least two men on dirt bikes and they remain at large, CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reported Wednesday.
One business owner said he saw a group of several men on dirt bikes riding around a Greenpoint, Brooklyn neighborhood aggressively, right before the assault happened.
Police released new surveillance video that very clearly captures the whole incident. It shows a 57-year-old U.S. Postal Service mail carrier pushing his cart near McGuinness Boulevard and Nassau Avenue at around 6 p.m. on Monday when a man riding a bike illegally on a sidewalk pulls up behind him. The mail carrier is seen swiping at him with his keys and the suspect lashes back at him and then the situation turns violent.
