Autistic man beaten, slashed open in broad daylight NYC attack: cops

Two heartless attackers beat and cut an autistic man in a broad daylight punch in the Bronx, authorities said.

The 26-year-old victim was walking with his mother on Melrose Avenue near East 154th Street around 3:30 p.m. on November 22 when the couple struck, according to police and a WPIX report.

The victim’s mother told the broadcaster the reckless couple – without warning – hit her son in the back with a stick and hit him.

Then they cut his right elbow, police said.

“They started fighting with him,” the mother, who did not want to be identified or give her son’s name, told the outlet. “Then the guy pulled out a knife and started stabbing him.”

The outraged mother said the suspects may have tried to stab her son in the stomach, but he raised his arm to ward them off.

Police say he was taken to Lincoln Medical Center, where his condition is stable.

The young man is highly functional, but doesn’t quite understand what happened, his mother told the broadcaster.

The NYPD released photos of both suspects on Tuesday.

One was last seen in a black fur hooded jacket, black trousers, brown boots and a black durag; the other wore a blue hoodie, black pants, white and black sneakers, and a blue winter hat.
