Mob ambushes man in attack on West Indian Day Parade: video

A mob beat, slashed and robbed a man in an unprovoked attack at the West Indian Day Parade on Labor Day, according to police and new video.

The 44-year-old man was attending celebrations on Eastern Parkway near Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights around 7 p.m. Monday when about a dozen people began punching and kicking him, police officers said.

Video released by the NYPD on Thursday night shows a group of people fighting in the street – most often appearing to be targeting a man wearing a black shirt and white shorts.

The suspects fled and the victim was taken to Kings County Hospital Center, where his condition was listed as stable.

It’s been an otherwise quiet year for the annual parade, which is typically plagued by violence.

NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said police may have prevented a shooting when they arrested an unidentified man who “came into this area with a firearm.”

“He was quickly arrested and this firearm was confiscated,” she said.

A short distance from the parade route, a stranger stabbed a Pennsylvania man in broad daylight during an argument over sitting on a bench, police officers said.

Jason Morris, 40, stabbed the 34-year-old victim in the face and back at Eastern Parkway and Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights when the argument broke out around 2:45 p.m., authorities said.

Police assigned to the parade responded, but it’s unclear if either man attended the celebrations.

The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital Center in stable condition, police said.
