Man Suffers Broken Neck, Fractured Skull After He's Shoved Down Flight of Stairs: NYPD

A man suffered a broken neck and a fractured skull after two men beat him up and shoved him, sending him tumbling down a flight of stairs in Brooklyn, the NYPD says.

On April 9, shortly before 2 p.m., two men punched and kicked the victim following an argument in Coney Island, police said.

The two suspects then shoved the man down a set of stairs, authorities said.

The fall broke the man’s neck and fractured his skull, according to police. He also suffered internal bleeding and was knocked unconscious, officials said.

While the victim was knocked out, the pair took his cellphone.

The victim was taken to Maimonides Hospital, where he is listed in critical but stable condition, authorities said.

A 22-year-old Brooklyn man was arrested April 20 and charged with robbery in connection with the assault, police said.

Officials are still looking for the other 20-something-year-old suspect (above).
