Random ‘sucker-punch’ assaults leave frightened NYC residents on edge

An Upper West Side man is cold-cocked in Chelsea.

An unhinged stranger throws a roundhouse at a woman outside a subway station on the Upper West Side.

A Catholic deacon and another man are pummeled in separate smackdowns in the Bronx.

One poster to the Upper West Side Together Facebook group put members on high alert two weeks ago after two friends walking past the subway station exit on Central Park West and 87th Street encountered a man dressed in black coming out of the subway.

He tried “tried to sucker punch” the girl, whose boyfriend then chased him off.

An Upper West Side man responded, “This is happening all over. I was sucker punched by a disturbed man in Chelsea” — and left with two black eyes.

On Monday a stranger punched a 67-year-old man in the face on a Queens subway platform in an apparent unprovoked attack, police said.

“These incidents aren’t happening in front of officers. They are happening due to opportunists taking advantage of the anti-police, anti-accountability era,” NYPD Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice, the founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC and a 15-year-veteran, told The Post.

“It is a dangerous time to be out and about strolling in New York City. The combination of criminals and mentally ill individuals roaming the streets equals disaster waiting to happen.

The city government totally undermines the police.

The Leftist pop culture in New York City undermines the police.

The Mau-Mauing activists undermine the police.

Consequently, the police stop patrolling.

The law-abiding people have been totally disarmed, even including less-lethal tools of defense.

And what happens?

Violent criminal predators and mentally ill people are having a field day punching the shit out of New Yorkers who are left terrified and hiding.

Utterly predictable outcome.

The city has been ceded to the violent criminal element of the city.

New York City went from the safest big city in the world under Giuliani to a shithole terrorized by criminals, and I don’t think it will ever go back.

  1. It could go back.

    But it won’t until the people who live there become serious about wanting that change.

      1. Last night’s news (Boston MA) had an item about something similar happening in Miami (South Beach if I remember right). Not clear what exactly was going on; the mug shot of the perp looked like your basic street bum derelict.

  2. When you don’t have effective law enforcement eventually you get 3-7-77 (look it up).

  3. The only difference between the past and now id we are just skipping the middleman where there people would be caught and released same day anyways.
