Robber Attacks Subway Rider With Hammer During Rush Hour

A robber bashed a 32-year-old man in the head with a hammer before stealing his cash at a subway station in Brooklyn this week, according to the NYPD.

The victim was trying to buy a MetroCard at the Rockaway Avenue C train station in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 9:20 a.m. Wednesday when he was approached from behind and hit with a hammer, police say.

The man fell to the ground and the suspect demanded his money. Once the victim handed over the cash, the robber took off.

The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital and was treated and released, police say.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-577-TIPS or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
