Skip to comments.Man, 68, Dies After East Village Sidewalk Beating: NYPD
Posted on 05/12/2014 8:31:24 AM PDT by csvset
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 .
I’m sorry, I’m not PC ... too old for that crap. That is no black male it is a feral savage nigger. I have a black male and his lovely family who live tow doors down. The thing that murdered that old gentleman was no black male.
The individual on the right looks a lot like Marsha Brady.
All these tip line things seek a squealer, somebody who knows the perp, and maybe heard him bragging about his action. There is no desire for assistance from the general public, so all the “elites” who enforce the law using the formal legal system (cops, lawyers, judges) feel perfectly justified in hoodwinking the general public.
And another person falls victim to America’s #1 protected class.
It’s definitely a black feral wearing an Islamo cap. I would say most likely its a racist attack because blacks being racist against asians goes on all the time in that city and that’s perfectly acceptable to liberals. Watch, when they arrest him not one word will be mentioned about racism. I once saw one of these mass produced welfare breeding cow products throw a tire rim through the plate glass front window of a chinese restaurant for absolutely no reason, and then laugh about it with his fellow welfare breeding cow products. And I called the cops and they never came.
I’ve been to “Chinatown” once and,IIRC,it’s in the Lower East Side.Apart from Asians I’m not familiar with the racial/ethnic breakdown of that area.

I stated that plenty of old men die due the hands and feet of "unarmed" perps. Here's a prime example. It doesn't take too many slams, punches and stomps to kill any person for that matter, but the elderly are especially vulnerable.
"Unarmed" my foot.
With the thugs running wild in NYC, the NYPD should reinstitute having decoy cops in high crime areas. They won’t do it as DeBlasio and Brattan would be criticized for racial profiling.
No, his reason for the attack is because his g.g.g.grandfather was a slave.
Of course he was sold into slavery by black men from another tribe and might have been owned by one of the thousands of blacks in the south who were slave owners.
The moron needs no logic for his hatred.
How do you like him congratulating himself after he’s finished? So far the lib NY Daily news has nothing on this story nor does the recently made lib NY Post. Can’t have the protected class looking bad.
One hit to the head is all it can take for someone to die and a person need not be elderly. Anybody can get killed with one punch to the head and it happens all the time. I remember a few years ago in NYC this young guy made the mistake of asking two ferals what time it was and one of them punched him in the head because thats what taxpayer supported products of welfare breeding cows do, and he fell and was dead by the time the cops got there. We pay for these ferals 3 ways: Support them as they are raised, become victims of their crimes, and then while they are in jail and every step is forced upon public.
Please, please, do not call these scum “men”. They are at best males. :-)
He’s black, what a surprise. And not only that, he was also out walking free on robbery and drug convictions. And not only that, he lives in the projects. So what we got here is yet again another feral, mass produced by liberal socialist programs let out on the street because some lib judge took sympathy on his welfare breeding cow mother who most likely been letting “her good boy” run amok since the day he was born.
Investigators believe Pugh confronted Hui outside 745 East 6th St. about 8:45 p.m., and ordered the older man to "Gimme something," witness told police.
This should be a quick conviction. Too bad the conviction won't be followed by an execution.
