Three muggers attack man in wheelchair in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN, NY (TIP): Three masked muggers attacked a man in a wheelchair in front of his Brooklyn home, throwing him to the ground, punching and pistol-whipping him, then running off with his money, police sources said.

The 42-year-old victim was cut and bruised on his head in the Wednesday afternoon incident on Cozine Ave. in East New York.

He didn’t get a good look at the suspects, who stole $400 and his cellphone.

Two of the suspects were armed, sources said.

The attack follows the September mugging of a 93-year-old Harlem woman that drew outrage. The crook in that case eventually turned himself in.
