A man wearing a medical mask to protect himself from the Coronavirus “sucker-punched” a uniformed NYPD officer this week; adding insult to injury in a city reeling from the deadly pandemic.
“Nelson Jimenez, 31, launched his attack in front of a crowd of bystanders who had gathered on a sidewalk near 183rd Street and Davidson Avenue in University Heights to watch the arrest of 27-year-old robbery suspect Yoemdy Castro, law enforcement sources said,” reports the New York Post.
“During the episode, Jimenez walks behind the standing officer, then socks him in the head, knocking off his winter cap,” adds the Post.
