NYC man suffers lacerations in bat strikes caught on camera

A homeless Manhattan man who was hit in the back of the head by a baseball bat-wielding attacker suffered a lacerated face and was bleeding from the head, according to court documents.

The grisly injuries were revealed at the indictment of suspect Karim Azizi, 36, charged with assault and criminal possession of weapons in the November 29 attack in Hamilton Heights.

At the hearing, bail was set at $7,500 in cash or $20,000 on insurance company bail, according to the Manhattan Attorney’s Office.

Azizi’s victim, a 47-year-old homeless man, suffered “bleeding from his face and head, swelling at the back of his head and a laceration at the front of his head,” according to the criminal complaint.

Video footage of the violence shows the suspect adjusting the bat inside his pants at Amsterdam Avenue and West 148th Street before approaching the victim from behind and beating him.

The bat hit the back of the victim’s head, causing him to fall to the ground.
