Man charged with assaulting elderly woman on NYC street

A man was busted Monday for a brazen broad-daylight attack of a 70-year-old woman in the East Village last week, police said.

Michael Hensley, 37, was charged with assault over the random pre-noon beating on East 14th Street near Second Avenue last Friday that left the victim hospitalized, according to cops.

Hensley, who lives in a Kips Bay men’s homeless shelter, allegedly struck the woman over the head with an unknown object, causing her to fall to the ground, police said.

The woman sustained cuts to her wrist and elbow in the attack.
