A 68-year-old grandfather who was severely beaten on an East Village street Friday night died from his injuries the following day and police are looking for the suspect.
Ruan Wen Hui had just dropped off his granddaughter and was walking on East Sixth Street between avenues C and D when a suspect came up from behind, yelled at him and started attacking, officials said.
Surveillance video from the scene shows the suspect tossing the man against a wall, then stomping and punching him. After the attack, the assailant is seen walking away.
Hui was taken to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition. He died Saturday, police say.
Hui, a Chinese immigrant, worked in a garment factory for the last 15 years, his daughter said. She described him as a man who always tried to help others and said she didn't know why anyone would want to attack him.
"Everybody loves him," she said. "Nobody can accept that he is gone."
A woman who lives on the block saw Hui lying in the street after he was assaulted.
"He was laying there, and he was bleeding, and the cops were here, and it was obvious that he was hurt pretty badly," the witness said.
Anyone with information about the attack or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
Maybe tighter gun control laws are required.
There was another article posted which described the attacker as black, but since its offensive to describe attackers by their ethnicity - unless they are white - it was apparently scrubbed from subsequent reports.
I understand daughter’s grief. But there is no sense to be made out of this. She’s right, there is no reason why anyone would attack him. We have a critical mass of feral young men out there, who attack for no good reason.
Might help if they actually gave a DESCRIPTION of the perp.
“This is for Trayvon.”
Had ENOUGH Yet ?
Yep, his only reason for attack might be trying to get even for Trayvon Martin. Those getting “even” don’t know the facts of the case, all they know if that somebody “dissed” a brother. And in ghetto culture, being “dissed” is the worst thing that can happen to someone. And the response to that is a violent response, according to ghetto culture.
Looks like a case of GibsMeDat and the victim did not have anything to give but his life. The black perp will most likely get away with it and will be emboldened to continue working his gibsmedat job.
Ironic. The government built these fantastic project buildings along the East River to house the poor, chiefly minorities, and as a result you have what amounts to free government housing for muggers.
If you have a name like Ruan Wen Hui, be careful when walking through Amish neighborhoods.
Yes I have.
“.....she didn’t know why anyone would want to attack him.”
That’s because your source of information is hiding a growing phenomenon. Your grandfather wasn’t black. That’s why he was murdered.
They built them in Chicago too. The most infamous was one called of all things”Cabrini Green” after a Catholic Nun, Mother Cabrini, who gave her life to working with the poorest of people. The “Project” now closed was so bad that even the police would not enter. More Democrat feel good sheite!
Definitely brainless ball-less feral scum.
That’s a bad neighborhood there, feral factories - housing projects with free money for breeding cows. A few years ago a couple of cops were sitting in a van around there and one of the ferals came up and shot them for no reason.
Sad to see how many people walk past him, some don't even flinch.
He was slammed against the wall, then punched and then stomped three times .
