A 28-year-old man was critically injured after a suspect randomly clobbered him in the head with a cobblestone while he was walking down a Bronx street, police and sources said.
The brutal caught-on-camera attack occurred as the victim was walking on Brook Avenue near East 147th Street in Mott Haven at about 5 a.m. last Wednesday, police said.
The male suspect stalked the victim from behind for several blocks before concealing his face with a mask and launching the ruthless assault, sources said.
After striking the victim with the cobblestone, the suspect stomped on the man’s head, police said.
The still-at-large suspect then pelted the victim with a different stone, according to cops.
The bloodied victim lost consciousness at the scene. He was found soon after by a woman who then called 911, police and sources said.
EMS took him to Lincoln Hospital with severe head trauma, authorities said.
He underwent brain surgery and remains in critical, but stable condition, police and sources said.
