The attack took place Friday at a building on Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and was streamed on Facebook live, while callous laughter rang out in the background.
One witness made a half-hearted attempt to intervene, but it wasn't enough to prevent the suspect from throwing nine punches and eight stomps to the 62-year-old man's head. Police identified the victim as Wilfredo Arce.
On top of the attack, the suspect spit on his helpless victim.
[The victim] was rushed to Woodhull Hospital, where he was treated for a fractured nose and a fractured orbital bone.
Police say the suspect has two prior arrests, including robbery.
