Man Robbed After Being Pistol-Whipped Behind NYC Building: Cops

A man in the Bronx pistol-whipped a victim behind a building and robbed him last month, police say.

It wasn’t immediately clear why the 29-year-old man was targeted in the attack that the NYPD says happened in Mott Haven on Alexander Avenue in the early morning hours of July 22.

It was that morning when the victim was behind a public housing tower when the suspect came up to him and butted him in the face with a gun, police said. Officials say the unidentified man took the victim’s wallet, house keys, cellphone and cash before fleeing the area.
