A 52-year-old man became a victim of assault earlier this week while out for a walk with his dog.
The incident took place at about 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday near 90th and First Ave.
When the 52-year-old dog owner – who also happened to be an off-duty cop – noticed a man recklessly riding his green motorcycle, he asked him to slow down.
In response, the biker “approached the victim and struck him multiple times in the face with a closed fist, causing him to fall down on the ground,” according to the NYPD. “While the victim was on the ground, the male individual continues to strike him in the face before fleeing eastbound on East 90th Street.”
The victim was taken to Cornell Hospital in stable condition.
Surveillance cameras captured the suspect at the scene of the crime, and on Friday, March 31, 31-year-old Sherred Johnson was arrested and charged with assault.
