Cops Seek 2 Suspects who Chased, then Viciously Beat up Man on Orchard Street
Apparently, the wave of violence on the Lower East Side has yet to break. The latest is the 24-year-old man who was viciously beaten in Hell Square early Friday morning.
At approximately 3am, two assailants reportedly chased the William Franco north on Orchard Street, and caught up to him between Stanton and Rivington. The duo pummeled the man – repeatedly punched and kicked – before escaping in a black car, cops said. It was reported over the weekend that he did not know his attackers.
Surveillance footage from a nearby store caught everything on tape, which the 7th Precinct promptly released.
Franco did not sustain any permanent injuries in the attack, but his face was cut, according to the Daily News.
