NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police are investigating after the battered and partially clothed body of a man was discovered at a park in Queens this weekend.

The unidentified man was found Sunday morning in Bayswater Point State Park on the north end of Far Rockaway, police said.

The man appeared to be in his 20s and had trauma to his head and body, according to the NYPD.

He was found in his underwear with his clothing piled next to him, police said.

The discovery has residents worried.

“We’re very concerned about our safety,” resident Jackie Moore told NBC4. “We have children and, you know, we really don’t know what happed. Just imagine that perhaps in the middle of the night when we’re sleeping, something terrible was taking place practically in our backyards.”

It’s not clear who the man was; police said he had no ID on him.

The medical examiner is working to determine how the man died.
