A beggar choked a 53-year-old man until he passed out before he stripped him off his wallet and backpack, which contained glasses, keys, gift cards, jewelry and cash and disappeared from the scene.
The incident happened at West Side in the United States on the night of Thursday, July 31, 2015.
Central Park’s Ramble in a hellish mugging that underscores the famed park’s skyrocketing robbery stats.
Acording to the victim, the last words he heard from the violent beggar were: “If you scream I’ll kill you.” while he tightened his arm around his throat.
The victim regained his consciousness about half an hour later only to discover that he had been robbed by the beggar.
Police said the beggar asked the victim, “I am hungry. Do you have any money?” and he (the victim) tried at first to brush him (the beggar) off, with claims that he had no money.
However, it did not just end there as the beggar pounced on him from behind and choked his throat.
Police said the suspect who was still at large as at the night of Saturday, August 1, 2015 appeared to be around 35 years old, 5-foot-8 and weighing 160 pounds.
