68 year old Asian man was beaten and stomped to death on an East Village street, in New York on Friday May 9, 2014 at about 8:45 p.m. The perpetrator was a black man, thus far unidentified (as of this publishing).
Ruan Wen Hui was walking along East 6th Street between Avenues C and D when the attacker walked right up to him and started screaming at him. Before he could realized what was happening, the attacker shoved the elderly man against the wall and unleashed a slew of relentless punches and kicks as the old man lay helpless by the railing.
After the attack, the knee grow walked back in the direction from whence he came. CCTV footage shows several people walking by the elderly man, pretending they did not see a damn thing. It wasn’t until a middleage trio wondered if someone may have fallen out of the window of the adjacent building
Ruan Wen Hui was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he died the following day. NYPD and Crime Stoppers are asking for anyone who recognizes the murderer to come forward.
CBS 2 reported that New York police have a suspect in this deadly attack in custody. The 20 year old suspect was reportedly arrested earlier today – on May 13, 2014 at 14th Street near First Avenue. The motive for the attack appears to be an attempted robbery.
Daughters of the victim said their father was a Chinese immigrant and spoke no English. Perhaps that’s what frustrated the wound be robber – he demanded money of the old man, but the old man had no idea what he was saying so the knee grow beat him up and stomped on him.
I don’t get cops, seriously. Why couldn’t they “seen him approach them in a threatening manner” or “fear for their lives“, or “seen him reach into his pocked as if to pull out a gun” or whatever other bullshit excuse they use to justify cop murders when they were arresting this prick. Why do they readily do that with the innocents, but not actual disgusting criminals?
