NYC man, 60, beaten to death after being accused of theft: police officers

A Brooklyn man was beaten to death by a man who accused him of theft, police officers said Monday.

Arthur Fleschner, 60, was seriously injured when Danny Quiles, 52, punched him several times and threw him to the ground at around 9:15 a.m. on December 4 on Hegeman Avenue near Chester Street in Brownsville, authorities said.

Quiles attacked Fleschner because he believed the older man — who he knew from their affordable apartment building about two blocks away — had taken his “personal property,” police officers said.

Fleschner was discovered lying on the sidewalk with head trauma and taken to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead four days later, police said.

Arthur Fleschner, 60, died four days after Danny Quiles, 52, brutally assaulted him on Hegeman Avenue near Chester Street in Brownsville, authorities said.

Quiles was arrested the next day and charged with manslaughter, police said.

He was being held on $300,000 bail and his next court date is scheduled for Thursday.

The building where the two men lived on Hegeman Avenue near Amboy Street provides permanent, affordable housing for single adults, according to its website.
